IMHO , I think Libra will be :

Screen : Carta E-Ink "6,8" mobius & ComfortLight, 16Gb stock, Waterprof@IPX8, memory 512@RAM + CPU Mark 7 and * Micro USB.
Price :199$


micro USB vs USB-C
- Why are there so many negative contributions on the Internet that some readers use micro USB and not USB-C?

- Where does this new need for some people come from that has an eReader [USB-C] port?


Except it is more convenient to use one cable for both phone and reader, why not, I understand. But overall?
What do these people need a USB-C port for?. To transfer data, ie "10 books", no one needs a data transfer rate of 10 Gbit/s


In short, some of the contributions people write from "a new reader that doesn't have a USB-C is a disaster" seem to me exaggerated. For God's sake, eReader is not a tablet with a 5000mAh battery.
* I don't know about you, but I recharge my eInk once a month and I don't really need USB-C.

- With "Libra H20" will have a "micro_USB", personally I do not see the problem.

I think it's been stated it's only gonna be 8gb. As for usb-c. I think it's better for quick charge. I can understand why people want that and a bigger battery. Because if those are not updated there really is no reason to get it....what else besides color would be an upgrade???

Plastic substrate would be good for durability.

No 'Libra' on the feminine hygiene shelves here . I'm hoping Libra refers to the Zodiac sign and we'll have this in hand next month.

Why is that not enough of a reason? Using the same cord for your phone and reader is a good thing, especially if you travel. And faster charging doesn't hurt.

What is your argument against using USB-C?

90% of the headlines on the internet are exaggerated. Everything is a disaster. Fans are freaking out. This one stupid trick will change your life.

But I do think the new reader should use USB-C. I don't think it will. But it should.

My current phone charges with the standard USB-C that I share with the Kindle Paperwhites, fire, and my MP3 player. I love when they all charge together -- my old phone used the micro cord (yuck), so I definitely don't want the Micro. I hated using micro with the previous phone but the standard with everything else I own. I see everyone wanting the micro, but I'm always like?? My electronics are apparently all behind the times.

Where did you get a Paperwhite and Fire that use USB C? As far as I know, all Kindles use micro USB, as do the Fires.

I suspect you have that backwards.

The one on the left is micro USB. It has been the standard for years. As far as I know, all Kindles and Fire tablets use it.

The one on the right is the newer USB C. It is an oval shape that can be plugged in without worrying which end is up. So far, no Kindle, Kobo or Nook has used it. But other electronics are rapidly adopting it as the new standard.

The Forma uses micro usb but the cable that comes with it can be plugged in whichever way I believe. It still accepts standard micro USB cables as well. Maybe the newer Kindles do the same in which case I can understand the confusion.

For those "more sensitive", there are adapters "microUSB to USB-C": (set of 4) or Powerline 3-in-1,

I agree. Some nuts gave the new Kindle Oasis one star because it didn't have it....lol....it's not a necessity.

I too want to use the same cable on my phone and ereader. That's why I hope they won't change the connector.

One day you'll have a phone that was made in the twenty-first century and it'll use USB C.

Honestly, I don't care whether it's micro USB or USB C. I charge my reader before I go on vacation so taking an extra cord hasn't really been an issue. But sticking with micro makes what to many is outdated technology seem even more out of touch.

And there are real benefits to USB C. They're easier to plug-in, since there's no 'upside down' so people can worry less about breaking the USB ports. And USB C can charge faster.
