Just a quick word to say I was, like many other here, price was always holding me back.
I was about to buy a Cybook Opus as they went down to 199euros but I realize a 5" screen was too small for me (smaller than a classic "livre de poche" (pocket book in english ?).
With the Kobo, price is very good for a 6" reader. I do not need all the fancy stuff (mp3, radio, etc..).
As soon as it is available in black, I will order it. Even with custom taxes, it is a bargain for French readers
