Now if only they had a Mini with Glo-light and micro SD card slot...

Well one can dream can't they?

A "Mini Glo" or a "Glo Mini"? I think we'll see the Mini with the light, but not the micro SD slot.

Thank you for the video.
I would love to have one with a light. A card slot, not so much but YMMV
An upcoming new Mini could explain why the current ones are discounted in many countries (fingers crossed).

I wonder if anyone buys back covers for the Mini. I find it a completely useless "feature". The Kobo Mini could have been slightly thinner if they had done without this.

I like my Mini for the size. I use it without a cover (I cut a bit of black cardboard to the size of the screen for protection). It is a lot smaller than my Nook with its cover. Now I use the Kobo all the time even though the screen is not as good as the Nook's and the software is rather underwhelming. It is just more practical.

+1 to that :-)

agree with the back cover, especially if you do buy a whole cover (which makes it impossible to fit in a pocket, but perfect for any coat or purse).
