I think I'll hold out for the Voyage 2015 model. My PW2 serves me well enough for now.

Not to be too nitpicky, but the back of the voyage is less than pretty.

How much time would you spend looking at the back?

It's similar to the back of my Kobo Aura HD.

Wonder if it's worth getting on early, or better to wait until they've worked out some of the kinks.

If I had a properly functional PW1 I'd wait, too. Totally agree on the back of the KV. I'm concerned to say the least. If I hate it back it goes.

Surprisingly, a lot. The feel of it is important to me, too. I read without a case.

General consensus seems to be that the Voyager is out of this quadrant.

I've put a shaded film over the too bright for night reading light on my NTB's lighted case and I'm thinking about getting a flygrip to help deal with the double weight of the case + kindle. The film is working well. Hopefully the flygrip will help me seal the deal and evade Amazon's premium lineup until discounts commence or even until speakers and real storage are added.

Seems to have been written by someone who uses ereaders to read books.
Engadget totally botched the section titled THE COMPETITION as they do not show the H2O next to the Voyage in the photo and they talk about the now no longer made Aura HD instead of the H2O. But then (IMHO), if they had shown the H2O next tot he Voyage, the Voyage would not look better. The H2O would look better.

The Verge calls the side buttons "clicky strips".

Paying $200+ for clicky strips.

Why would the H2O look better? The ppi is actually a bit less on the H20 at 265dpi. At best maybe the difference would be negligible and for consumers it would come down to 6 vs 6.8 screen, waterproofing, lighting and content?

I think the H2O would look better because of the larger size and as you stated, the ppi is negligible for most people. But that is my opinion. I'm hoping we get some side-by-side comparisons soon.

Thanks for letting us know. You've only posted about why you don't like the Voyage about twelve hundred times, so we really wern't sure yet.
