Well, I might just pick one up when it arrives in stores next Wednesday. I have tried a larger display (the Kobo Aura HD) but ended up going back to 6 inches. Personal taste, of course, but 6 inches feels like the sweet spot for me.

Moreover, my first eInk device was the NST, so I have a soft spot for these Nooks. I also want to support competition when possible.

The Glowlight 3 has Android 4.4.2 as its OS. There could be a way to install an app or two on it - possibly by adb. I'll do a little mild tinkering with it and find out.

I also emailed B&N, for what it's worth, to suggest that they consider setting up the Glowlight to make it easy to install a few apps - not games and videos, but apps that are primarily about reading. Take Instapaper, for example. Or Wikipedia. If B&N did that with their Nook, they'd have a feature that neither Kindle nor Kobo offer. It could be a good selling point, if marketed intelligently.
