Is the Kobo Mini any good?

Does anyone here have first hand knowledge of the Kobo Mini.

I've just ordered one for my son and would like to know what people think about it.

Also whats the best format for the kobo, I'm a kindle person so most of the books are in mobi format. i have read the mini will support mobi but am i better converting to epub.

Kobo is best for epubs format. Use Calibre with tools from "Apprentice Alf" to convert. It appears that Kobo readers can read mobi format but with mixed results (I've never tried it myself). The firmware is the same as on the other Kobo models (Touch & Glo).
This thread gives you more details, post #4 in particular.

I sincerely hope so. I have one and I'm very glad with it, and I showed it yesterday to a friend and she's going to get another one.

I thought it was really cute, but for some reason it didnt inspire me to buy. I may have been more keen if I didnt already have a PRS-650. I've got a prepaid Visa burning a hole in my wallet, so anything could happen over the next few days
