The folks over at engadget went hands on with the new PW device at IFA and video taped their experience, including comparing to an older paperwhite in each hand.

A lot of people were interested in whether its visibly better, and whether the features are worth the upgrade. The new vocab features, etc, are featured here and you have the chance to judge for yourself.

R. D. Clark says:
One error in the video, I believe, was his characterization of the touch screen as using infra-red sensing; the old Touch was IR, but the PW switched to capacitive. And I'm not sure if he was saying that the new PW uses the same screen tech as the Kobo Aura, but if he did say that he's wrong. The Aura is higher resolution, and larger.

Can I get a software update for my old Paperwhite to get the Vocab feature ?

Yes Kevin, the latest update for the Paperwhite 1 does include the Vocabulary Builder. See the announcement at the top of this forum for details.
