Source is GoodEreader, but I doubt they Photoshopped the image. At first blush it looks like the Kobo version of the Oasis:

The Kobo Spain Twitter account posted an image of a new Kobo e-reader that will be released on October 16th. The Kobo Forma or Kobo Shape features*two physical page turn buttons. The bottom image looks like the square, but the portrait mode image right behind it looks like a typical e-reader.

I'm guessing GoodEReader wasn't the original source.

Yes, this is my impression too. The part with buttons looks thicker than the opposite one. However, the picture is not very clear. But if it's true, it would be great

I wonder if it's waterproof. Probably, I'm guessing. Also wondering how long before Walmart gets them. (Probably the 16th.)

Well, it's just two weeks to wait. If it's waterproof and has SD slot or 32GB on board -- then it was my mistake to get KOA2

It looks like the Oasis with a much smaller battery. Possibly very lightweight...at expense of battery life??
As a Kindle owner I must admit it looks good.

It’s true, not Photoshop.

That's always a safe bet!

Going only by what I can see I think the Oasis design is nicer. The Oasis is thicker on the back, which lets your hand curl around the thick side. The Forma/Shape (and I think Forma is a better name) is angled on the front and it seems like it would be more awkward to hold.
