Thank you for this info, Paola.
Even a 6 inch PB + glowlight would be nice, because I like my Pocketbooks a lot better than my KoboGlo, which seems to have a lot of minor bugs.

I also switched to Kobo (Mini) because of the premature death of my PB360, but don't I miss all the features of the Pocketbook!

Which features are you referring to?
(I'm not very familiar with Pocketbook at all, but I'd like to know what you guys like the most about the devices ...)

Mostly things like the built in cover and easy customization. You have multiple reader programs, folder organization, a wide array of themes, fonts, artwork (e.g., boot screen), homebrew programs, tilt to turn pages as well as buttons, etc.

with the Pocketbook you get options for sooo many things that you can really make it to work exactly as you want it. Not ideal for people who couldn't care less and prefer "simple", but once you get used to it, I suspect no other device can make you happy. You can make do with something else, but you won't be happy - well, I am not

Ok. I assumed most Linux based versions was kinda customizable by default (Onyx, Bookeen etc), but I take it Pocketbook might be a step ahead, then ...

Those are highly customizable, although because the companies have chosen to keep most aspects open to this, not because it is linux-based. Several other readers, and many tablets, use a linux kernel, but restrict access to key components. I'm not sure at this point whether or not Pocketbook is a step ahead of Bookeen or Onyx on customizability (if I were looking to replace my 360, they'd both get serious consideration from me).

What distinguished the 360 in particular was that it was both so customizable and had (in the opinion of many) a great form factor (cover, shape, buttons, screen size, use of accelerometer). It was designed with a good deal of user input, which produced not only these features, but a sense that the company was very open to the end user. This created a lot of good will for many toward the company.
