Sorry. I don't know how to do that. I would have found a smaller image, but magenta Aura images are rare.

Yep. I really liked the PRS-350 except for slow refresh and lack of front light. The rubber texture back was really convenient, too.

I'll respond here for the benefit of anyone else who might not know how to do this, as it's not obvious although it's easy.

When posting, don't pick "Post Quick Reply." Choose "Go Advanced" or quote anther post. When the new window opens, scroll down to "Manage Attachments" and click. Paste the image URL in the box that says "Upload File from a URL," close the window and that's it! If it sounds complicated, it isn't. Try it once and then you'll have it.

I'll add that while we're not going to go all draconian on image sizes, the restriction is in the Guidelines for the reason that it's a courtesy to fellow members to keep threads legible. And you can always ask!

Sorry for the thread hijack, folks.

Me too. Very nicely made with kind of "clingy" back texture that stopped them from slipping in your hand. And I have to agree with Richwood (I haven't seen any posts from him lately), the red Sonys were really classy looking (so were the navy blue ones, if you could get them into enough light to tell them from black).

So what sort of changes would you make to Kobo hardware to make it more interesting?

What Readers are of an interesting design?

Try looking up the thread. I'd like metal bodies like the Sony readers had. I'm realistic to know that's probably cost prohibitive.

I, personally, would like to see page turn buttons and a new, non-front-lit model.

Yep. Unfortunately, the Sony design was made for eReaders when the bottom lines ones were selling for $179 (and, originally, more).

What matters to me in terms of form factor is how lightweight and compact a device is. I want a light as a feather device that I can hold comfortably for long periods of time and travels easily. Hence devices heavier than 7 oz or with screen sizes larger than 6" are useless to me.

I'm a little disappointed in Kobo for going with large screens on their latest devices. You're getting into tablet territory with those sizes. Also, while Kobo is very innovative they seem a tad less refined than Kindle in some regards. Little things like adjusting the backlight on the Kindle are much smoother than the Kobo.

The reader that piques my curiosity the most is the Oxyn Boox Poke. On paper it looks great. Super light and slim, running Android in the background.

The Poke's weight definitely makes it very attractive to me.
