Great product preview. J.J., were you able to hold the Bookport Plus? How does it compare in size to the Book Sense?

It's the same shell as the Plextalk Pocket. I'm holding them next to each other now and the Book Port Plus is slightly thinner, about the same length, and perhaps a half inch thicker. The Book Port Plus has probably the most recognizable buttons, but still looks sleek and feels smooth to the touch..

Sorry that should say a bit wider, not thicker.
