The Kobo Touch can connect to the Kobo ebook store over WiFi for downloading ebooks, newspapers, and magazines. It also has a basic web browser capable of downloading ebooks from other sources. The user interface is straightforward and intuitive, especially so with the touchscreen. It has a soft rubbery coating with a quilted back that gives a pleasant feel. It only weighs about 7 ounces so it is comfortable to hold one or two handed. Additionally, you can view a PDF in portrait and landscape mode. Double tap to zoom in, or use the zoom dial. Navigate by using the page slider and table of contents. No re-flow, highlights, or dictionary with PDF files.

I purchased a Kobo Touch for myself and one for my wife. Not being tech savy, I was nervous about the purchase, but after reading the reviews and talking to two library representatives, I went ahead. This is the first time either of us have used an ereader and we are both delighted. The Kobo Touch was easy to set up, easy to learn to use and is an absolute delight. It is a product that delivers and has met all our expectations.
