That's far more than an answer to the STwGL.

If the KG uses an e-ink screen, you have to wonder whether the stated resolution is a mistake. There's no mention of resolution in the Kobo press release on which the Engadget article's based.
1024 x 768 would make sense for an LCD screen, an e-ink screen should be around 300 DPI, so a minimum of 1200x900 "pixels." Unless this is the blockiest e-ink screen ever made.
