To be fair, I think that's what he meant when he said "there was enough outcry that B&N removed the memory partitioning..."

I wouldn't be shocked to see the same happen with the 4.

However, I think the days of the 6" screen are not long and not enough people who care about partitioned memory are going to by the GL4.
It went back to at least 2011's Simple Touch. From Wikipedia:

Quote:
2 GB internal (1 GB for content, of which 750 MB is reserved for B&N content), microSD expands up to 64 GB
I had one, but this was before I had Calibre so my library didn't exceed 1.25 GB. I wonder what I would have thought when I hit the eventually memory error, checked it with Windows and saw lots of space left

I have a 2015 Glowlight Plus that has no partitioning, but I have used up the 2.5GB-ish memory.

The 7" Kobo Libra 2 is very portable. The 6" nook GL4 and Clara HD are not much different then the Libra 2.

Libra 2: 5.7 by 6.4 by 0.3 inches
nook GL4: 4.75 x 6.2 x .2 inches
Clara HD: 6.6 by 4.3 by 0.3 inches

I do agree that the 6" screen size will be with us for a while. But I think sales of the 6" screen will drop as larger screens sell more.

It's the width that makes the difference on whether it will fit in your pocket, or not. The Libra 2 is over 2" wider than than the Clara (almost a third again wider) and about 1.5" wider than the GL4. Essentially the Libra 2 is a square, it would be like taking the Clara and trying to stuff it into your jacket pocket sideways. It won't work. The width of the new 6.8" Paperwhite would be better for portability, with its 4.9" width vs the Libra 2's 6.4". Basically the same size and shape as Kobo's older 6.8" readers.

The Libra 2 is .2" wider then the GL4.

As for portable, the Libra 2 with Kobo case fits in my coat pocket no problem.
