No need to presume. As I stated, it is confirmed by Amazon's own developer information. I simply found it odd that didn't warrant a mention, while features that were not even new (such as dual band WiFi) did.
At first I got excited and then I checked out the specs. The ppi on this is a measly 171. I'm the owner of a Kindle Fire HDX (3rd generation with 323 ppi) that still going strong (knock wood) and the display is fantastic. It's the perfect size for travel and is unobtrusive enough for sitting on my desk at work. Unfortunately, the OS is still at 4.5 and my Hulu app no longer works. I'm waiting for Amazon to step back up and deliver a decent display in a smaller size.
I'm getting this version for the sole purpose of listening to my Kindle books with TTS while working. I'm gonna plop it in my waist pack and listen with headphones. I needed one this small and inexpensive to carry around all day.
You don't transfer the way you are thinking even if you have a computer.
Anything you buy from Amazon is stored in their cloud and can be downloaded to your new device. Apps and such may or may not retain your progress or in game stuff as that is controlled by the app developers and you need to reach out to them to see if they have any form of backup/restore.
If your old device is still working, there's a limited amount of automatic backup you can use right there.
Find your user guide below if you don't have one on your device and the info should be there.
Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap Settings.
Tap Device Options, and then tap Backup & Restore.
Tap the switch to turn Device Backup ON. Your device will automatically back up once weekly when it is in sleep mode and connected wirelessly.
Anything you have created on the device such as documents, videos etc etc, it's up to you how you back them up. Amazon has some options for photos and videos if you have Prime and there are many commercial services.
NOTE: I do NOT speak for or represent Amazon in any fashion. This is a customer to customer forum.

If i dont have a computer how do i transfer from 1 kindle to the new kindle
This thread is about the new Fire Tablet. JP's reply also contains information pertaining to backing up a Fire Tablet. You mentioned 'kindle.' Kindle e-readers and Fire Tablets are totally different devices. Which, exact, device(s) do you have?
