Technical specs

I've ordered one. I'll post a review when it shows up. This may be the ereader I've been waiting for. (Well, except for touchscreen, which I don't like, but for $40 I'm certainly willing to give it a try.)

ETA: Kobo apparently has problems with double-billing; I checked my purchase, which had an authorization error at first, and sure enough, I've been billed twice. I've sent an email to try to get it fixed; if that doesn't work, I can contact my bank to contest the charges. Just a warning for people whose money is tight--if you get an auth error, DO NOT attempt to repeat the purchase right away.
I know this barely counts as news around here, but Diane Duane's slashing prices on her ebooks again. For "absolutely no reason," she's running a 50%-off sale on every ebook in her online store, good October 10th only. Use the coupon code NOREASON to get the discount. Duane's ebooks are available in both mobi (Kindle) and EPUB (Nook, Kobo) formats, and her Young Wizards International Editions are DRM-free and unrevised for the new millennium.

Diane Duane is once again thinking of completing her "Door" series. […] It's a charming swords-and-sorcery series with very likable characters in a "everyone is bisexual" world. There are important gay, straight, lesbian, and poly romances. Also dragons, a snarky shapeshifting fire elemental, angst, a fascinating magic system, and a non-sappy Goddess. Warning for non-gratuitous and plot-important but fairly graphic rape flashback scene in book two.

If this sounds like something you might possibly like, check out her e-book site, where they are all available. If you decide to do this, use the discount code STARLIGHTGUILT when you check out: it’ll give you a 15% discount on your total purchase and also mark you as someone to be notified should something start happening with Starlight in 2012.
