Here's three in stock right now. Seems to be the same one.
Well, the Voyage may be my favorite. But I dont think its worth two hundred dollars.

They know that some people really really want a Voyage, but they are apparently unwilling to make an updated version.

I think a Mobius screen (light, flexible substrate) and 8 GB storage would generate a lot of rebuys, even by people with a working spare. All that and a 7" screen might generate even more demand, but there would be some lost sales to people that need the pocketability. (But even 7" Oases will fit in some pockets.

A Voyage 2 was rumored quite a bit, yeah?
Do we think it got canned, or just hasn't come out yet?

It is fairly safe to say it got canned. Especially since the Oasis came out, got updated twice, and the PW4 inherited a lot of Voyage features minus the questionable ones to save costs.

I think most of the rumors about the Voyage 2 was from Good(sic)EReader

The Voyage 2 will come out right after Kobo releases a new Mini.

Which Mother's day? The more recent USA invention or the older UK & Ireland one. Unrelated origins and different dates.

I don't think a Voyage II or a Kobo Mini II are likely for the reasons pointed out earlier.

It doesn't matter. Mothers' day release date for mythical devices is a long running mobileread joke.

I'm new here. Right. In Ireland it's "When Easter is on St. Patrick's day"

Which is apparently impossible (17th March for Paddy). Though occasionally within a week!
Quote:
Earliest Easter
Western (Gregorian)

In 1818 the Paschal Full Moon fell on Saturday, March 21 (the equinox). Therefore, the following day, March 22, was Easter. It will not fall as early again until 2285, a span of 467 years. The next earliest Easter between 1818 and 2285 (March 23) occurred in 1845, 1856, 1913 and 2008, and will occur again in 2160—an 11, 57, 95 and 152-year gap, respectively. Easter last occurred on March 24 in 1940 and will not occur on that day until 2391, a 451-year gap.
Orthodox (Julian)
The earliest dates for Easter in the Eastern Orthodox Church between 1875 and 2099 are April 4, 1915 and April 4, 2010 (Gregorian). Both dates are equivalent to March 22 in the Julian Calendar.

Amazon is kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place on this one because they are getting slammed that the O3 screen is too white. It always amazes me that some people demand to forbid other people the ability to adjust to taste.
I don't think people complain about the screen being too white. They complain about it being too blue.

Getting a neutral white screen is really hard, I guess.

Given the way vision differs, some people could perfectly well complain about both at the same time. My Oasis 1 screen looks distinctly blue through my left eye and distinctly yellow through my right... perhaps if I could use both at one I'd get white

I've noticed I see colors differently depending on my mood.
I picked up my Voyage and thought something was wrong with it, the screen was so yellow. Then I checked the next day (same lighting conditions) and I was like, my screen is so blue!

I know this about myself, so I just try to ignore it. It's not the device, it's just me. It's like my brain thinks about the screen being too yellow and it suddenly is. The power of suggestion and all that.
