Honestly, it was just the way you said it's not the best, but then never backed it up in any way that intrigued me. I thought maybe you had one that was the best and a reason for it.

So the nG3's partitioned memory is better then the Aura2's non-partitioned memory?
Maybe I wasn't clear enough. I was talking about the hardware. Even in the message you quoted I did say "While I like the Kobo software, I'd give it up today for the Glowlight 3 if they hadn't so severely partitioned the memory" so I'm pretty sure you knew what I was talking about.

The Tolino Vision 4HD has a color changing light and it is using 6" Carta screen. I can't say which is better.

We don't have Tolino here.

Because I'm a nerd, if/when I take a trip to Europe, I plan on going into stores to check out the different e-readers available there.

Reference deleted. Could you have found a less offensive way of saying that in your opinion, the "Toledo" is garbage?

On a different note, where did you obtain your Tolino ereader and which model was it? Shipping to North America does not seem popular with a lot of European etailers.

Before today I don't think I even knew the Tolino existed. Now I'm curious why it was (is) "garbage."

Does this new device still send snippets of side-loaded content to B&N with the reading-habit reporting?

Not if you keep the wifi off, it doesn't.

If you're side loading, why contact B&N at all?

So I can make use of that storage that is reserved for B&N content? Otherwise, I have an ereader with less than 1GB of storage.

If you're willing to go the ADB install route, you can install a launcher, Calibre Companion and your favorite reading app(s) without rooting. All those apps will live in the B&N content partition, including any books you transfer to the device with Calibre Companion. Yes, it can be done.

The stock Nook reader will not be able to find these books, though. It looks only in its own folder and in the sideload partition. So, you'll need reader apps to go along with any books you put on by CC.
