The Often-Changing Kobo Thread: Kobo and Oprah

Some kind of announcement is coming tomorrow, right?

Is it a lighted Mini (they'll sell like hotcakes, in my opinion).

Or a new, improved Kobo Aura? (Or is 'bye-bye' to the Aura?)

Or a new, improved Kobo Glo (to compete, in size, with Amazon's Voyage)?

Personally, I'd like to see a Kobo Aura H20 with a little windshield wiper on it.


Well?

At $69.99, it would be a great Christmas present.

I would be happy with an H2O in a five and a half or six inch pocketable size. Or in an eight to nine inch Manga reading size.

A Kobo "Voyage" with 300 dpi, the size of the current 6" Aura, would be at the top of my Must Have list. I think I would like that better than a lighted Mini. One disappointment, for me, was never finding a slim snap in case for the Mini. I just adore the size of the Aura.

Kobo with sound?
Color e-reader?
Mini-glo?

My bet's on a kobo with sound for audio books. We'll just have to wait and see.

I think it will be something small and cute, like a Pika only smaller (5in) and cuter.

Or it will be something fine-grained and white, like a field of Alyssum only finer (300dpi) and whiter.

I'll only be interested if it's low-power colour, or non-glass substrate.
