Old News and wrong facts
If you are talking about the Nook with Glowlight... It's NOT backlit, it's lit from the front, hence the extra layer on top of the screen. Look up Flexlight (http://flexlighting.com/
) although this has already been discussed a bit here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=176331
BTW nice of you to start a new thread about a possible new Kobo coming out...
