Kobo Sage and Libra 2 released (pre-order)

Disappointed to see the Libra 2 with an indented screen still. That was the one thing I hope they would change. Don't see a compelling reason to upgrade from the Libra 1 as I have no need for audiobook support. The supposedly better contrast is nice but need to see how much of an improvement it is.

Comparison weights to mull over:

The Kobo Forma weighs 197 grams (6.95 ounces).
The Kobo Sage weighs 241 grams (8.50 ounces).
The Ipad Mini (Wi-Fi only) weighs 293 grams (10.34 ounces).

Does anyone feel that the Ipad Mini is just a tad too heavy?

For me, it's not so much the weight of the Sage, but the unknown quality of the screen.

Of course. That's why I don't read novels on mine.

And as I said before, remember that a Forma doesn't necessarily need a cover, which saves a lot more weight again.

Yeah, I was hoping flush screen would become the norm.

As someone who has neither, I don't see a compelling reason to choose the 2 over the 1. I kinda like the design of the 1 better. But I have heard the buttons are sucky, so an upgrade to that would be nice.

The USB-C and 32GB are nice to haves, but not enough to influence my buying decision.

Huh? The buttons are perfectly fine.

I think the button issue was with the Formas, wasn't it?

The power button for the Forma is super bad. But it's the only problem I have with it's buttons.

That's right. Now I remember. Someone was suggesting a sleep cover because the power button (on someone's unit) was almost impossible to use. A few others mentioned that they had that same issue. Thanks for the correction. Sorry I got it wrong.

Please don’t crosspost; it’s a violation of the guidelines which should be read. I’ll add that it’s particularly heinous when you’re hijacking a thread to do so!
