Depending on how well it sideloads eBooks, I may actually buy this just to support a non-Amazon eReader in the U.S.

That's a really childish and silly reason to buy the Nook. AND exactly the reason I'm buying one.

Why do that when I can just go into a B&N and see the new Glowlight Plus? I'm the only person I know that has a Kobo at all.

But I can tell you that I preferred mass market paperbacks to hardbacks or trade paperbacks. I preferred the more compact size.

Is that photo added to the first post an actual image of the new Nook or just a speculation what it might look like?

I have created a wiki page NOOK GlowLight Plus for this device. The specifications are still mostly not available and B&N have not yet posted it on their site.

Well, I did too. But now I read on my 7'' Oasis most of the time. Really like the larger screen.

Ikr. Seems like no matter what Barnes and Nobles does ..even if they are still in there trying. Someone has to find something stupid to complain about....

It actually sounds like a pretty nice device.

I am bothered by all of the examples you mention because recycling product names causes needless confusion.

If they want to gripe about one in particular, fine by me.

I also have to say, given my limited funds situation and how embedded in the kindle ecosystem I am, including Kindle Unlimited, this is probably a hard sell for me. And that's the problem facing ebook ecosystems competing with Amazon?

I can't think of ANY other 7.8" eReader that sells for $200. That, in itself, should be a major selling point. And if you're (some kind of) B&N member, you get another 10% off — so $180 (not on sale).

Yep, it's very personal. I did end up with 8" (Forma) via 6" (Cybook Gen3) -> 9.7" (Kindle DXG) -> 6.8" (Aura HD/H2O) -> 7.8" (Aura ONE).

I bought the Forma because I wanted the buttons
