This update is a step forward.
Still, we miss some important stuff that was requested ages ago :
* Instapaper sync (like the iPhone version)
* ePub 3 compatibility (like the japanese Kobo)
* A way to turn pages without using the touchscreen (can't use my kobo in a ziploc bag while in a tub)
Will we be getting these soon ? (not 4 months like this update )
Will we be getting the japanese firmware or is the japanese kobo hardware different ?
