Those sneaky developers...

I take this to mean that the easter eggs are not yet public knowledge, and that you know what and where they are.

Anyone on the beta team does, but we were asked not to divulge. I would volunteer that the process for accessing them is similar to the previous one. Just need to explore a bit.

I think the developers need to stop writing eggs and focus on basic things like improving PDF support, cleaning up the bloated interface, and improving rendering speed.

I think you will find that most ereader firmware developers would consider PDF support to be a lower priority than say ePUB.

Rendering speed is mainly a function of the hardware in the device though. How the ebook is accessed and any speed gains achieved is another matter entirely.

Don't be silly. They didn't write them, they just popped them in there for a bit of fun.

I work in a Borders and I was able to find the Kobo Wireless easter egg in about ten minutes. If you know how to get to the easter egg on the first Kobo, you should be able to figure out how to find it pretty quickly on the Wireless one. Don't want to spoil anything, so good luck!

Figured it out in about 3mins.

I've included the spoiler below this line... if you know how to look for it.
