While I love the appearance and reading ease of the bigger screens, I think I would always like to own the smaller size unit to carry around in my bag. I'd probably go more for a tablet in the larger size and a pocket size Kobo for reading novels etc and using on bus trips or reading in bed. If Kobo goes for a bigger size, don't discontinue the smaller units.

I have no idea what they may be planning for the future, but the iPAD Kobo app is reported to be really good and I am expecting that when we see Android Honeycomb tablets in the next few months, the Kobo app will be much the same. Not eInk of course for any of them, though the Notion Ink Adam may be a pretty good reader with Pixel Qi. Time will tell.

Kobo has resisted polluting their lineup with multiple sizes thus far.

But only the future knows for sure.

Can I quote you on that ?

They should fix up their little ereaders and get them right before trying anything else, otherwise they will surely pollute their lineup
