Have you live with the Kobo or Kindle 3? They are virtually the same form factor -- and around 8 oz. I am quite impressed about how Kindle 3 makes great use of the screen real estate of a 6" screen.
Well, the K3 looks nice but I'm in no rush to replace my K2. For starters I want to see if they update the firmware on the K2. And "virtually" isn't *exactly* the same, now is it? The thing about ergonomics is that millimeters and grams matter. I like that they went to a bigger 5-way control but I'd be more impressed if they got rid of the unnecessary keyboard. That's almost two inches they could trim with no real impact to usability.

I like K3 (especially at that price) but it is hardly perfect.

Kobo? Light it is, but I'm no fan of bottom-grip designs. Neither the hardware nor the software has anything I need or want.

Since the question is about satisfaction, my answer stands; I prefer 5in to 6in.

Moving forward, I'll likely stick with what I have until I see what K4 brings next summer. If I get any new toys before then its more likely to be an Android webpad or one of the upcoming CoreULV Win7 tablets.
