Zenji, the Forma also has a plastic substrate screen. Plastic substrate screens have less chance of breaking / are more flexible.

Time for a vacation? Yes, this is your lucky day. Disneyworld* is offering the ride of a lifetime - but only for a limited time! Enjoy Mickey Mouse and Daffy Duck as they cavort around you, chasing their tails. Ride the Twist-A-Wheel and see the inside of your stomach and all its contents.


* This is in no way an endorsement, simply a way to get a new Kobo at the going rate!

There have been some comments about the fact that the official Sage sleepcover literally COVERS the power button. Today, I discovered why that can be problematic, and a fix:

(I read almost exclusively in KOReader, so I don't know if this would happen in the stock Kobo reader)

After a busy couple of days in which I've had no time to use my Sage at all, I picked it up, opened the sleep cover and found that it had powered off. It did not take long to realize that my impaired motor skills and fingernail-free hands were never going to get the Sage OUT of the cover to turn it on, so I thought "would connecting it to the PC work?" Happily, it did. Hopefully this might be useful to anyone who finds themself in a similar predicament.

PBTech and Kogan claim to have stock - could be worth trying them first.

Both are charging 10% more than Kobo's normal price for the ereaders. And Kobo has the Forma at $379.

Does Kobo hold stock in Australia now? I didn't know.

I think so. My Sage appears to have come from within Australia. Whether they do for all the ereaders, I don't know.
