From Kobo Glo to Sony T2

After having read a few books on the Kobo Glo I went back to my Sony T2 (whic I also liked much better than the T1). The T2 has a more responsive screen and is more comfortable to hold since the sides are rounded and weighs less. I also missed the buttons that lets turn pages with just one hand. I'm keeping the Glo for a while to see what new updates bring but
unless the Kobo Glo gets quicker I doubt I'll be using it much.

Owly I like my Sony 650 better than my Kobo Glo, but, my eyes need a lit screen for night reading.

So - I day read non-fiction using the 650 and night read fiction using the Glo.

It works for me.

I regard the Glo as a device in the making and if Kobo can get it's act together with better firmware then it may compete.

In the meantime I find the Glo sort of tacky compared to the feel and use of the 650.

Kobo is probably never going to get their act together with the firmware, it has been a complaint since the day the first Kobo was released. I am not sure why they have not addressed those problems yet.

What are the major painpoints with their software other than freeze-ups? I only played around with some of them in the store, and the only thing noticeable was the lenghty registration process without which I could not operate some of them.

What makes the Sony user interface better?

My Kobo Touch would need a hard reset at least once a day, and was dog-slow at stuff like pulling up a ToC. But I've had my Glo for a couple of weeks and it has never locked up or reset on me, and everything is very fast and smooth.
