Will the $59.99 Kobo Mini eReader be your pick?

You may have heard of the 5-inch eReader, Kobo Mini, but failed to pay attention to it. This lightweight title is being offered at a price of $59.99 for the upcoming Valentine’s Day (from Jan. 25th to Feb. 14th 2013) despite its marginally cheaper price of $49.99 before Christmas in 2012.

Compared to the well-known Kindle Paperwhite, Kobo Mini comes at a cheaper price and smaller size. If you are living outside of US, it may be a better option, together with Sony eReaders, since standard EPUB eBooks(including Adobe DRM-protected PDF books) are well supported on Kobo instead of Kindle devices.
