I've had my Kobo since the day it was available and although it has some issues, I'm certainly using it a lot. Today it slipped from my hand and hit the floor and the case actually cracked, although it didn't seem a hard hit. It also seemed to separate the top (white) from the bottom (grey) along one side, but that snapped right back in when I pushed the white part back down. BUT it suddenly went to about half contrast -- that is, it's working great except that the letters are suddenly so light that I can hardly read them!! Anyone got any ideas? or do I have to buy a new one?? or should I buy something else?? I'm a bit shocked that it is as breakable as this, since it only fell about three feet onto a wooden deck, not ten feet onto concrete. I should also mention that the blue button is already 'sinking' on the right side and looks like it won't last out the year.

FYI, you don't have to back up your purchases. You can download them again.

Back to OP, best to contact Kobo and see.

I figured that I wouldn't get any warranty coverage since I dropped the thing and it was noticeably cracked. I figured I had to buy a new one, and then checked out Sony -- which I bought. No comparison! So much better!! Pretty much instant on, instant paging, better feel, better little round page-turner thing. So much better all round -- and the same price.
