I was quite surprised I would love Opus even more once Kindle arrived, I didn't expect it. Ever since Kindle arrived (July 8) I haven't read a book on it yet, while I guess I finished 4 books on Opus in the meantime. I just somehow refuse to start using Kindle, don't even know why.
I wasn't thinking of a new improved Opus for backup, just a clone of the one I have now. I had the misfortune to choose pink one - I didn't realise that I wouldn't tolerate the color right in my face all the time (with four men in the house I needed something "non male looking" I guess - wrong decision). I'd now buy black or blue.
For the moment it is brown with decalgirl skin (I have spare blue skin once I feel bored with the brown) Screen is just fine for me and I don't miss anything in it. I would prefer if Bookeen stopped with the sipix screen for future - main reason I didn't go for Orizon. But tiny Opus is just great for any handbag or even coat pocket. I also disable accelerometer and when in bed at night I read in landscape mode. Do you use any reading light? I have "Kandle" for it. And Bookeen sand colored case. Shows how much I like it since I can't stop rattling about it
