I voted for a 7'' Voyage. After I've used my Oasis 2 for almost a year, all 6'' screens feel too cramped. I only use my readers at home, so portability isn't terribly important to me, but I'm afraid a 9-10'' Voyage would be too heavy.

While I like my Voyage, I wouldn't really despair if Amazon discontinues it altogether. I like my Oasis just as much.

A 7" Voyage would be too similar to the Oasis. The cost will be closer to an Oasis once you factor in the larger screen.

I'd say keep the 6" screen but merge it with the Paperwhite.

I hear this a lot, but I'm not sure I agree. Amazon produced a Voyage and an Oasis at the same time when they both used 6" displays. Why not do the same thing with 7" displays? Heck, why not transition the entire line to 7" and use the same sorts of design differences to justify the price tiers?

I love the Voyage, but I also agree this would be the best option, merging with a Paperwhite.

Why stop at 7...I'd like to see a ... 10.5"... Though not sure I'd actually buy it, was kind of a let down when I got my Voyage, didn't live up to the hype, but a bigger screen would be a step in the right direction for me.

Or do they make microscope attachments for any e-readers...

Lately, my goto e-reader is the Aura One..., the Max for PDFs, and then the Voyage. I got my Voyage with 3G (my first gen Paperwhite also has 3G, while later ones were WiFi only...though I seem to have lost my WiFi only ones... though, its killing me that I lost my Kindle DX Graphite...along with a bluetooth typewriter style mechanical keyboard, that I set down somewhere and then forgot...there was also a convertible chromebook, which I hadn't used much as it was my first and, so far, USB-C device. The smaller version from the series that I got as replacement has a more typical charger and ports...)

Voyage came out Before the PW3 so seems they are Merged. Guessing the PW3 sells better than Voyage. OR Oasis IS the New Voyage

Keep the 6" Voyage and make a 7" one also. The Voyage has the best screen of all the e-readers. For me it is perfect as is, but I'm sure some updates could be added to make it more popular. Of course the PW3 sells better than the Voyage because it is half the price, but after reading on the Voyage I couldn't go back to the PW3.

The choice is what most likely killed off the Voyage. When Amazon put the 300ppi screen in the PW. Now all of a sudden the extras (light sensor, buttons, flush screen) didn't look worth the money anymore when compared to the PW that got the screen update for free. What needs an update is the PW itself. The problem is disparity between PW and Voyage in price. The better the PW becomes while keeping its price equal, the more the Voyage is looking overpriced. If you ask me, the biggest difference is the flush screen that makes the Voyage and Oasis so high in price. Kobo doesn't do flush screens on current models -- I would almost bet it is to save money and not a design choice.
