Kobo are being smart. They own the lower end of the market with a simple, easy to use ereader that will allow purchases from a plethora of ebook retailers.

I was considering a K3 regardless of Amazon's walled garden approach and that hideous keyboard or the PRS-650 which in true Sony style is overpriced.

However now the Ko2 is out, then I am heading that way. Just the faster processor and quicker speed is a winner for me.

My point would be that they're packing features in that are going to be frustrating with a single dpad and the kobo 2 isn't really a kobo 2, is just the what the kobo should've been.
As long as they continue to support the original kobo and fix some things, i'll be happy... but if i have to buy the kobo2 for the desired result then i won't be bothering.
I'm sure all will be well and the original kobo will be supported still.

Anyone else notice on the site that getting the paper is one of the great features of the new kobo? Weren't we supposed to get that before now!?
