I hope the Libra has that "oranger" orange screen.

Im always skeptical of comparison photos, but the side-by-side of dark mode in the last picture reveals a dramatic difference in the black levels between the two devices, as the author suggests. Surprising, as the difference appears more significant than the 15% e-ink states in their marketing.

I was curious whether the increased contrast would be visible in standard black-on-white mode and it appears as though the Libra 2 text is bolder in the same way as when one increases font weight. Positive news for someone who was doubtful there would be any easily perceivable difference between the Carta screens we are used to and the new, 1200 variant.

Now Im annoyed the new Paperwhite didnt adopt the new screen. I find the Libra 2 more compelling than the Sage, even though Im far more predisposed to want the Sage. Of course they raised the price on the Libra 2 despite the increased competition from the new Paperwhite.

If I was Kobo, Id have come up with a 7 inch Clara HD model to compete with the new Paperwhite and dropped the Libra altogether.

I have to say that I’m impressed by this Survitamined Libra2 on the paper. Would be curious to see how both compare.
I might buy one in December if I stop by Zurich.

I'm really curious about the Tolino Vision 6 and the Libra 2.

Generally it's much harder to swap out a SoC (system on chip) than it is ram. So the ram difference seems normal, but different cpu speeds would mean it's also probably a different mainboard.

I would assume it's the same case for both, but with space and mount points for two different mainboards. That or the spec of 1Ghz for the Libra 2 is wrong.

I would guess the Libra 2 and the Sage have been in development / production well before the new Paperwhite was announced. The announcements were only 2 weeks apart, so there really was no time for Kobo to react, yet.

I don't think it will be a threat for Tolino though.

Tolino already has a much more aggressive pricing strategy. While the Vision 5 has an MSRP of €179, the market price is usually around €130 and even dipped below €100 a couple of times in recent month.

So if anything, Amazon is catching up to Tolino with the new Paperwhite, not the other way around.

It does seem strange, that Kobo is using the quad-core CPU for all their new devices (Elipsa, Sage, Vision 6) except the Libra 2. Maybe it is because of the pandemic, that they could not get enough of the quad-core chips?

I don't think it will be a problem though. The Libra's performance was fine and it is not geared towards note-taking or PDF files like the Elipsa or Sage.

The Vision 6 on the other hand is running Android and Tolino has been known for performance issues these last couple of years. So it should profit a lot more from the more powerful chip than the Libra 2 would.

Didn't the Aura One and Forma use the same SoC? Most Kobos for like the past 5 years? My guess is Android 8.1 needs more power to run well than Kobo's Linux OS and that necessitated beefier hardware. Seems like this is a mash up of the Sage and Libra 2. Sage internals with Libra 2 body (and Bluetooth antenna removed to save 60 cents).

Sure, the Vision 6 will use Android 8.1 and you can install other apps via debug menu.

Wow, big noticeable difference in black especially with dark mode. I'm excited for the new Carta screen

In addition to the standard sleep-covers, Tolino also releases a couple of special covers with a more colourful design.

These 6 covers are available for the Vision 6 (and should also fit the Libra 2):

-> Green Stiches
-> Reindeer
-> Wine Red
-> Blue / Yellow
-> Antracite
-> Cotton Red

Transfer calibre (Mac) -> Tolino Vision 6

Hi everyone.
I'm thinking about getting the Vision 6, but as for the fact I have read the posting of "papierlos-lesen", I'm concerned about not being able to use calibre anymore to transfer my ebooks to the Vision 6. In the posting it is stated, that the new Vision uses the MTP-protocol and it won't work with calibre on a Mac. The calibre manual, on the other hand, states MTP as a possible protocol to use with an Android device.
Has anyone experience with this issue: using the Tolino Vision 6 with calibre on a Mac? Anyone who had a device to test before the upcoming release tomorrow?
Thank you so much and best regards, Melanie

I haven't used a Vision 6 with an M1 Mac but I have used my Lenovo Android tablet with one and MTP, at least for the Tab M8 FHD, does work so unless Kobo did something very strange with the Vision 6's implementation of Android, it should work.

I'll test that tomorrow / Thursday, depending when I have the time for it.
