So, it comes with a stylus. It also comes with a sleepcover and a powercover. Yes, you'll have to pay extra for it, but they are available.

Another thing, finally USB-C! At this moment, the only device I have left that doesn't use USB-C is my One...

Oh, that's a lot more expensive! Normally, the prices are equal (sales tax is always included in euro prices). Not sure I'd pay 500 euro for it, considering the Elipsa Pack is 400 euro...

The Australian site lists $AU439.95 and $AU279.99 respectively. Your first price sounds more like the Elipsa. Unless they have a Sage package with the pen and cover like the Elipsa.

One can only guess they are trying to save a few cents here and there, maybe the chipsets are cheaper too....

From Kobos site regarding the sleep and power covers.

Quote:
**Sold separately, not includeded
Buying additional products that work with a device does not make them come with the device. You are making several purchases at the same time.



Though I can’t find the power cover on Kobos site, just the sleep cover at the moment.

Found it https://us.kobobooks.com/products/ko...wercover-black apparently they’re sold out which I suspect is more that it’s coming later.

Why Libra began to weigh more, as much as 22 grams? What has changed?

Most probably wrong posting of price by kobo.

anyway, not sure if it is preorder or available already.

What's weird is that Sage and Libra 2 has buttons for adding to cart while other current ereaders do not have add to cart on my end.

battery is bigger at 1500mAH

and to quote the techcrunch article:

"The new Sage and Libra 2 are definitely chunkier, with no extra-thin screen part, instead being as thick as thickest section all the way through. It’s a clean design in some ways and for all I know it may even be more comfortable to hold, but it’s already tough enough to find a pocket the Forma fits in. And it doesn’t help that both are about 20 percent heavier. While technically that only amounts to a few dozen grams and 3 or 4 millimeters, part of the draw of e-readers to begin with is that they are thin and light."

At least not for me when I tested it.

Try clearing your cache and cookies, the Sage displays at 259USD for me on its page and in the cart.

The Sage was also $500 when I first added it to cart.

Check your URL, it's $500 if you're on gl.kobobooks.com and $259.99 on us.kobobooks.com. You also get the option of choosing Libra 2 colors on us.kobobooks.com.

The Sage has a "PowerCover" that "delivers on-the-go charging". Interesting. Goes back to the original Kindle Oasis. But, doesn't split the battery between the two. But, the site doesn't have any specs to show the weight of the cover or the size of the battery in the cover.

The save top vs the Forma bottom. I like that the Sage is more flat.
