So, the Kindle Paperwhite and Kobo Glo have the same resolution. 768x1024
The Kobo continues to use IR for touch (on their website)
Not sure if there is a significant advantage in the Kindle Capactive or Kobo IR (perhaps a thinner bezel depth for capactive?)
So the Glo tech is the next important factor, and how it impacts robustness.
I've heard bad stories about Nook Glowlight, being very fragile.
I'd love Kobo to tell use more about how they achieve theirs.
