Tolino announced a new reader:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh....php?p=4265572

A 6" reader, with an updated CPU and 1GB of RAM. Does this mean similar specs for the Clara 2E?

Here's review of the Tolino Shine 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSa_QPOCjEI

Yes, same hardware specs as the 2E, except for the different pattern and logo on the back plastic.

Absolutely not.

The B300 is the SoC used on the Elipsa & Sage.

Well, that makes Shine 4 an interesting option, if it's noticeably faster.
The fact that Clara 2E still uses the same processor as the 2018 model is disappointing.
But I'd like to see a more thorough comparison, including battery life.

On Amazon they're listed at £41.53! And temporarily out of stock.

My cover has already arrived from Kobo. The 2E is back in stock, so now wondering whether to cancel my Amazon order for the device itself, and get it through Kobo....

If your Amazon order was the one that says 1-2 months (or as it now says November 1-6), then yes.

Amazon is saying 26 Oct to 16 Nov for delivery. If it's the former, I'd hang on,but if nearer the end of that period ..

(If in the US) why not just order from Walmart.com? $134.32 with two day delivery.

The why not is because John is in the UK.

Don't cancel your order. The Amazon listing for November 1-7 is gone.

WHAT SCRATCH! I checked and checked and I don't see any scratches. I think maybe it was a hair stuck to the screen?

Thank you for thinking so, he'll be pleased to hear it. He's such a ham.

And you're very welcome!

My red case came in. I think I like it, but it does add some heft to the device. Not sure how necessary the protection is, just toting it between rooms at home. Also i liked to see the cover of the book i'm reading when the Kobo is asleep. It is quite snug when its in the case, so its not so convenient to take in and out (but the snugness is probably a good thing). The foldy cover does do a good job of propping it up when I'm eating and reading, but I do find myself toying with the flap when I'm reading normally.

Also the felt-like material the used for the inside of the case does produce pills (little fiber balls).

Yep, the fact it's not present in all the photos makes it obvious it's a cat-astrophe, not a catastrophe.

I know it was just a pet hair. But it is the correct color for a scratch.
