They are on sale in Canada too, on the Kobo web site.

Against my brain, I ordered the Libra Colour.

I have to at least try it out.

I noticed that it is a bit lighter than the Libra 2.

Even with the bigger battery (2050 vs 1500mAh), so that's great.

It seems the site isn't fully updated. If I try to view the repair page to learn which components you can replace:

http://kobo.com/repairability

I reach a ZenDesk login page, instead.

Yes it was like that a few days ago. Perhaps they've forgotten this page.

One of the early reviews (I am not sure if they just reviewed a press release or an actual device) mentioned Kobo had partnered with iFixit, presumably so that iFixit could give official repair instructions and perhaps be a source for the spare parts. Maybe keep tabs on the iFixit site?

I'll wait for reviews before making any decisions. It looks interesting though. Every single one of them.

For users who get the Clara Colour, could you please post your opinion on contrast for normal (non color) novel text, especially if you have a Clara 2E.

I would like a comparison of the Libra 2 to the Color Libra.

I will try to do it when I get it, but I warrant nothing, as I'm very bad with reviews.

It's interesting that the sleep covers being offered between the Libra 2 and Libra Colour don't overlap but are both priced at 39.99. To my naked eye the dimensions and placements of the buttons between both models are identical. Sadly I was hoping to not spend an additional $40 on a new cover.

In the UK, the sleep cover is 50% off when you pre-order the Libra Color. In the US, the sleep cover is not discounted.
