RIP Kobo original, a sad loss

Just to report that my Kobo original, purchased locally and much loved even after being passed to our son in law, passed away suddenly before Christmas.

Tim loved his Kobo ereader (perhaps not as much as me) and took it away with him whilst on a six month deployment (he serves in the RAN). Unfortunately the Kobo suffered a fatal cracked screen some weeks after his return home.

RIP

A happy footnote and a frenzied rush to a large electronics chain, my daughter and I purchased him a replacement for Christmas.

It sounds like it got used (and loved) well! A good life.

Sabredog, was it the pretty white reader with the big blue button? I had problems with mine freezing on page turns and had to return, Kobo still had the books I purchased for it in my library when I got the new Kobo Glo and one day they mysteriously appeared on the bookshelf.. go figure. I love my new Glo.. I think I"m going to get one for my daughter who is always hauling the huge heavy IPad around for reading..

The same model, though our late Kobo was black with the single dark grey button.

I am glad to hear your son came back home safe and sound. And that the reader served him faithfully during that time.

Regards
