I like the sounds of that. How are you liking the unit so far? I read on another site that it's not an IR screen, but is the screen nice still?

Well... maybe and maybe not. Maybe someone will fix the firmware for both of them now.

On the plus side, it means we should be able to root it just as easily as the 3s.
And if someone could figure out how to get a Bluetooth keyboard to pair to it, you could even use it for writing.

No IR? That's the first I've heard (one way or the other).

Yeah a user by the name Sportsbike Mike on one of the other blogs said he got one and it's not IR. Just going off that.

Okay. But the screen seemed pretty sharp (without the light) anyhow.

Aaaaaaaaand it's STILL out of stock on line!

This reminds me of the flurry generated when Kobo sold off its last dozen or so Minis a few years back.

Given the speculation about the batch size on the initial shipment of kindles way back in 2007, it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't or couldn't order a big initial shipment to try to make it sound more popular than it is.


And the fact that goodereader, some random youtuber, and... PCMag, iirc, are the only reviews I've seen so far...

Once rooted, is it possible to add your own font to the reader?
