I didn't notice the cleavage. I was mesmerized by the bathing caps. They were so weird.

I'm not sure the reader is quite rugged enough for water polo.

Sexism aside, I thought it was clever, showy and unique. I think they could have toned it down and still succeeded with it (and probably succeeded even more so with female audiences) but now they will just have to come up with a really nice vid of some Navy Seals using them in the water while they wait for a mission to start.

Or at the very least a happy family surfing with their readers.
Can I vote for the Navy Seals please

Oh, come on! Don't make us do all the work! How about Olympic swimmers diving in to retrieve an H2O?

How about Firemen hosing down a small BBQ fire and then shaking the H2O dry (that was on a nearby table?)

We're not that choosy. James Bond is international. I'm sure a covert operation involving water and the H2O could be written into a commercial. And, as Josie said, we're not choosy. You don't even have to hire a real James Bond actor. Just any covert operation with cool undercover dudes will do!!!

Which displays books better? Kind of hard to know considering that they used two different books at different font sizes and different line spacing. Fortunately I know how many books the Amazon book store has compared to Kobo. Seriously guys-nobody gives a shit. This is a hardware comparison.
Some MR member once dubbed those guys Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dumber. Spot on, I'd say.

SameerH, RobertJSawyer, are you hiding in the background somewhere?

I recognized Robert Sawyer sitting on the couch at the 1:22 marker. He's wearing the Hawaiian shirt and talking to the guy just before he dunks the reader in the circular tank. Not sure about Sameer.

Somehow CAF JTF 2 assaulter* lacks the public recognition of US Navy Seal. And that is the way they want it. No discussion of organization, capabilities or operations is permitted.

* Canadian Armed Forces Joint Task Force 2 consists of Special Operation assaulters and supporting staff.

BTW, for anyone who is interested, the pre-order link on the Kobo page seems to be active again. http://www.kobo.com/kobo-aurah2o.html gives me a pre-order now button which leads to having one in my shopping cart.

Regards,

I seem to recall that when the Aura HD went live for pre-orders that they also had 2 different style cases available for pre-order. Interesting that there are no cases available/listed for pre-order for the H2O. Given the listed dimensions it looks like the H2O won't fit in an HD case.
