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.
