I prefer no page turn buttons and a lower price. I don't need them and I don't want them. The touch screen lets me turn the page better then the buttons do.

Thanks. Having gone from a 6 inch Clara to a 6.8 inch H2O2, I can appreciate t that that is a significant difference for sure.

I wish my Kobo Clara had page turn buttons. I keep trying to swipe for page turn and accidentally activating the settings screen.

If you can "just reach out" to to push a button, than you should be able to just reach out to tap or swipe (in general, ignoring the Fringe cases), so what are buttons needed for page turning?

Why would you want to "just reach out" if you don't have to. I think most people would want to turn pages the way that is easiest for how they read most frequently. If one is holding the reader and one's finger is on a button on the reader, than it makes sense to use a button. If it is comfortable to tap the screen, tap the screen. If it is comfortable to swipe, swipe. If it is comfortable to rest the reader in one's lap with one hand holding a remote, hold a remote. It isn't rocket science.

I most often read in bed or sitting with the reader in my lap. A remote would be more comfortable for me. The hands under a blanket would be another reason.

As far as the duvet, I would say it depends on the duvet and the remote tech used. If it is typical duvet, and the remote is Bluetooth, then I believe it should work.

How many MR members does it take to use an ereader with buttons? Two, one to stick out his finger, and another to push his reader against the finger.

I'd add a third, as quality control. Someone needs to verify that page turned.

How do YOU feel about this change?
It doesn't just happen in your climate. I have the problem in the cold and my Mom often has problems now with her PPW1 because her fingers are cold (she is 85). I'm trying to get her to take the PPW3 I bought from Woot as the problem isn't as prevalent on that one. She's stubborn. She'd rather complain than upgrade for free.
I bought the Voyage originally because of the buttons (both 3 more after that).

One as the firmware has been patched to disable the buttons because the touchscreen is so much better.

Wrong. One to hold there finger out, and one to push the reader against the finger. Similar if you like to swipe.

Hey, if you're going to be swiping, we're gonna need to get a crew out here to safely move that reader back and forth.

Buttons on both sides please, and bezels wide enough so fat thumbs dont activate the touch screen.

And if Jon is doing the moving, you will need one additional person to stick thier fingers in the ears of the reader while Jon proselytizes about needing cases on e-readers.

Also wide bezels help keep thumbs from hovering over the screen which sometimes activate a page turn or turns.

Some of us have problems with touch screens as either it is too sensitive or not sensitive to a touch. The fingerprint id on a tablet is also useless.
