I don't understand why you posted this, Jon.

(Just joking!)

Thanks for the heads up.

Not yet. The first cover will probably be Kobo's cover.

No idea on the processor. That's not part of the information.

Nice price

Sooo close.
I'd trade the waterproofing for an SD card slot.
Then I'd be drooling.

I don't like the button placement on the back. It makes me question what the cover is going to look like.

Forgive a very minor correction, but this device is using a 20cm eInk screen (all eInk screen are exact numbers in cm). 20cm is actually 7.9", not 7.8". It's the same size as the screen of the iPad Mini.
