I’ve had it for 2 weeks now and I quite like it. Here it is:
Kobo is a bare bones e-reader. It does not have a wi-fi connection, a built-in dictionary, a keyboard or touch pad. It does not have search or annotation capabilities. It won’t make me scrambled eggs for breakfast, either. All it does is display the text of the book I’m reading, with a minimum of fuss. And that’s all I want, really. Kobo doesn’t even try to replace my laptop; instead, it will replace a few hundred paperbacks that I would otherwise buy in dead tree format and that would take a good chunk out of my ever-shrinking shelf space. It’s small and lightweight, perfect for reading in the park or at the coffeehouse, not to mention travel. It’s comfortable to hold and much easier on my eyes than the laptop.
