So is the device itself! And it can be pre-ordered**. More than 300 dpi*. And interesting looking back in the video. Exciting!

Hah the black cover is already sold out...


EDIT: *1448 x 1072 pixels... and the site says capacitive touch screen... Shame if that's true, I liked being able to turn pages with gloves on with IR

EDIT 2: **Done! It says delivery will be 5 June...

EDIT 3: Eeeek I'm so excited! It's just the perfect upgrade to my Glo (non-HD).

Doesn't look like it (at least not according to the specs on the Dutch site, but then again, the device description isn't completed yet so there might be missing information altogether).

Thanks! Interesting... the Dutch site says dimensions are 157.0 x 11.1 x 8.3 mm... if your numbers are correct (165 mm) the Clara HD would be taller than the Glo... :/

Hah, weird!

I see now they added the product description since my earlier post. The product description states the 165 mm; the specifications state the 157 mm that I saw earlier. Hmmm.

Now all we need to know is whether or not it uses a microSD card that can be swapped out for a larger one.

there's no external card slot

the shell is built in such a way that I expect it will be difficult to take it apart
