Well, the Mini spec sheet says vizplex but the Kobo Touch and Kobo Glo spec sheets both say pearl. That tells me Kobo thinks they're different tech.
Sony has a 5in Pearl but even now all the Pocketbook 360s still run Vizplex.
Kobo may have had to go with the older (cheaper) tech to hit their price point.
Mind you, I'm on record as saying the difference between vizplex and pre-2012 pearl isn't a big deal but for somebody looking too maximize contrast it just might matter.
