Great

on 12/30/2011

Pros: + Slim and sleek. The Kobo Touch is much smaller than the Kindle 3 I had before this, and a good bit sleeker compared to the Nook Touch. + Excellent screen (same one used in the Kindle 3 and Nook Touch). + Slightly cheaper than the Kindle or Nook. + Kobo constantly releases firmware updates to improve the system. Cons: - No hardware page turn buttons. - Interface isn't as polished as the ones on Sony Readers. - Battery life appears slightly worse than the Kindle (although it's a trade-off for being much smaller) Overall, the Kobo Touch isn't a perfect e-reader, but it is a good one and I've been really happy with it so far.

The perfect Mother's Day gift

on 5/14/2013

I bought this for my mother who has been resting a lot due to illness. She loves to read and the Kobo Ebook Reader has been perfect for her. Unlike a larger tablet or a smartphone, the Kobo is lightweight, not backlit and the same size as a normal book so is very similar to reading a hard or paperback book. Extra perk that she, as an avid Soduko solver loves is the Soduka app built in to the Ereader. Read More
