The ambient light sensor a la Kindle Voyage sounds nice as does the light tone control.

so it's basically a H2O in a bigger box without the micro SD card slot. but seems to have double the internal memory 8GB instead of 4GB with a flush screen and a few other bells and whistles, i'm sure it will appeal to some people.

Can you know without opening the device?
Who the brave one to open the device and ruin the warranty and waterproof only to check if there's a internal SD.

Maybe once the embargo on the FCC photos is lifted.

Not me, but it didn't stop some folks with the H2O.

it probably will have, and if so surely it would have been a sensible idea to have a slot somewhere on the side or bottom of the device, so that it would make it easier for the user to upgrade the card size from say 8GB to 64GB, without having to void the warranty opening it and risking possible
unnecessary damage.

That is fascinating news!

Is this in a new firmware update for all Kobo devices? And how does the integration work -- it seems to be implied in the article that the Kobo has a native interface to OverDrive, no web browser required.

It's right from the shop. You put your library card info in, presumably like you do for adobe digital accounts, go to shop, search for a book, and if it's available to loan from your library you get that option.

No new firmware yet, but this is a firmware feature not a hardware one. So when we get a firmware update (should be fairly soon since we're hearing release dates of September 6th), there's no reason this feature should be lacking.
