Kobo Sage and Libra 2 released (pre-order)

Now this is what I was hoping for earlier this year. Very much looking forward to people's opinions. The Libra was plagued with an unevenness to its display, so I'm hoping that's resolved with the Libra 2.

the portability of the 6" ereader seems to have been abandoned by both Amazon and Kobo in favour of the larger devices/screens. for my own personnel preference the PocketBook Touch Lux 5 appears to be the best option if i want the ComfortLight PRO with expandable storage.

best wishes koboy

Still waiting for a 9" Kindle.

These new Kobo e-readers sound intriguing! I don't have the specs yet, but according to a Goodreads YouTube review I watched this morning, they come with a basic 32 mb ram, which is great, have larger batteries than previous Kobos, and clearer glass/plastic screens. Kobo does seem to be designing slightly larger, slightly weightier models, and I wonder how these will feel in the hand. I will definitely be updating my Kobo wish list, though!

Maybe the bluetooth?
Most wifi chips also do bluetooth.

Well my wife had hinted she wanted a new eReader for her birthday so I bit the bullet over breakfast and pre-ordered a Sage and sleep cover for her. Her birthday is a week after the release date so with any luck....

No thinner screen part anymore. Now the thickness is uniform.

I'm not interested for this very reason.
Oh, this actually increases my interest!

Heavier and thicker. Passsssss.

Major bummer that the Libra got heavier

That is the opposite of what I like to see on devices like these

How's this in comparison with Libra H20 on paper?

I'm on my way to replace Paperwhite for Kobo during Black Friday. I reckon I might get H20 for €150 and Libra 2 is currently selling at €190 here. I don't care much for audio since I'm using my phone for audiobooks but I'm having difficulties to figure out how they differ.

USB-C is nice but probably not worth €40.
