Let me add my vote for another 5 inch device - front-lit would be a big bonus! For me the Pocketbook 360 was the ultimate device - love the clip on cover and the overall construction (in my view nothing else even comes close). I recently hunted all over to replace my Pocketbook 360 (the screen was fading) - it was a really really difficult task because I live in Singapore and not many European shops would sell (or ship) to Singapore!

Two 5 inch devices are due to come out any moment. With and without WiFi. The on without WiFi will be first.
There are photos on the net.

The PB 515 does have a [possibility to attach] cover. Nobody has seen the cover so far, but the press release mentioned it. If you look at photos at the above site, it has two notches along the top edge to attach the cover.

great news! Hope they price it well: it 1cm longer than the Kobo mini (the Kobo Mini is 102 x 133 x 10 mm, while the PB Mini is 100 x 142 х 7 mm), but that should not be much of an issue, especially if it comes with a clip on cover.

EDIT: apparently it will be sold for €59
