The new ones do have nightlights, at least as accessories.

Rudimentary. It is still considered a non-advertised, "experimental" feature and is pretty useless. In a pinch, better than nothing.

My wife just bought me a Kindle3 WiFi for my birthday 10 days ago. So far I love it. I've bought a few books and have downloaded quite a few freebies. I find the screen very easy to read, even in relatively low light. It is easy to turn pages, back or forward, and uses virtually no power. Learning to navigate its menus is relatively painless, but does require a half hour of reading and experimenting.

The web browser is virtually useless, however. There are frames in each of the websites I visited to which I could not point with the cursor. I loaded some music, and while it sounds okay, the songs are not navigable. They play in some arbitrary, non-controllable order. It also comes with Audible Books software that works better than the Blackberry Audible software that I have on my phone.
