What font is it? (Just curious)

Now that I have set up the Aura to my liking. My opinion would be if you can spare the extra cash the get the Aura. I am going to use my Glo as my traveling eReader but the Aura will be my main device. It is whiter, sharper, and snappier that any reader on the market that I know of. Just read through a few chapters of a book I was reading on the Glo and I am guessing the battery life is going to be much better considering I am averaging four less page turns a chapter. I just wish the had used the soft touch plastic to give it better grip. Oh well, guess I will have to order the sleep cover next.
Now that's the kind of review I like to read. Real user experience.

Maybe a skin would give the back a nicer feel.

Thanks for the pics. Impressive how much more text fits on the Aura's screen.

Caecilia - since that is what my Kindle was set to I just set the others to that as well. I prefer the Kobo Nickel out of the stock fonts.

Definitely would like a skin or something that maintains the design of the back. I would never have thought that the ridges would be as comfortable as they are.

You're welcome! After I tweaked it to my liking I found that with the screen resolution I could set the font smaller than before and still read comfortably with my Mr. Magoo eyesight. So even more words per page. Which means less page turns and more battery.

Thank you for the pictures. Do Kindle PW and Aura HD have similar color in person? My friend has a Glo, but prefers PW background color, Aura HD might be the answer.
About my order, I called KOBO to add a cover. To save KOBO some shipping money if KOBO decides to ship them together. The poor customer service gentleman could not find my order in their system, he really felt bad. I feel sorry causing him a early Monday morning blue. My credit card was charged, so it's just a matter of time the Aura HD will arrive. Hey, if you're thinking about calling KOBO for your Aura HD order, don't get your hope up. And please don't make nice customer service people feel bad.

Yes, my Aura is closer in color to the PW than my Glo. Once everything was adjusted to my liking it is much better than the PW. The Kobo team should really be proud of this reader. I hope I don't have to deal with CS. I do need a cover but I want to wait until they have an espresso one in stock. I got the Onyx Aura and my wife got the Espresso one. So I want to wait and order the covers together. Or find a nice skin that was suggested earlier.

I went to go make some shelves on my Aura only to find that the shelves I had created on my Glo where already created on my Aura. I am one happy camper.

I know some people report bugs in the Kobo firmware but I must say that the newest firmware(2.5) has really fixed the bugs that were bothering me. I loved my Glo before...but now I love it even more.
