Kobo mini Glo?

Glo was a good idea.
Why not Kobo mini Glo?
Is it safe to assume that Kobo will release Kobo mini Glo anytime soon?

Unlikely. The Kobo Mini is the "bargain priced" model of the Kobo lineup. I can't see there being much of a market for a small, frontlit model as it would jack up the price.

Still, I suppose it depends on how expensive the manufacturing process is for the ComfortLight. It might happen. I just wouldn't expect it anytime soon.

I think if it were doable at a reasonable preice point, it would already be the mini. I tend to agree that mini is aimed at the bargain segment, so price is everything.

I'd seriously consider upgrading to a Mini-Glo, if the price point remained roughly the same.

Me too! My Mini is in my purse for my commute and at this time of year it's dark when I go to work and dark when I go home. I'd buy a mini-glo for the convenient size + the light even if it cost almost a much as the full size model

I'd buy one if the price were right.
I love my mini, but a glo one would free it up for hacking ;D
