The idea of the Mini, with shirtpocket size, really appeals to me. Elsewhere, I read that it is a 5" 600x800 display, so the e-ink pixel density must be higher than the 6" 600x800 e-ink readers previously available.
And, BTW, it uses the e-ink Pearl display -http://www.eink.com/customer_showcase_kobo_mini.html
The Kobo web site states "Vizplex V110 display"
From another site: "Vizplex is the name of the e-ink screen, Pearl is simply the designation of the latest version of Vizplex..."
I confirmed this by looking at the Power-On screen on my Sony 950, which has the Pearl display - it says Vizplex while booting up.
