Kindle Now or Wait Until August?

You have probably heard by now that Amazon.com has announced a big price cut to the latest generation Kindle 2. The new price of $189 makes it more tempting than ever to pick one up, especially since I've already been wanting one. The only thing stopping me are the rumors that Kindle 3 is expected to drop in August, featuring a higher contrast screen, a speedier processor, and who knows what else. Since I still have a pile of real books to read, I'll likely wait until August to see what the new one is like. I hate the idea of buying something like this so close to the end of the model's lifespan.
