Kobo Review by Avigayil:
Last night I was at Chapters and spent a good 20+ minutes playing with the Kobo:
The main features I like about the Kobo are how easy it is on the eyes, how light it is, and really how simple it is to navigate. That combo make it a really nice eReader. I suffer from migraines so easy on the eyes is of a primary concern, and I honestly didn't feel like I was looking at a screen the entire time I was reading. Though securely tethered the Kobo is VERY light, a big bonus if you want it to be transportable. Navigation, heck, hide the manual and I am sure a 1/2 hour with the Kobo and anyone can have the navigation and features figured out.
The main features I don't like about the Kobo is how I can't read 'landscape' as in lay the Kobo on it's side and have the page rotate. I also am not too fond about how the screen goes kinda odd when you 'flip' pages. I also don't like it doesn't support manga, but what eReader does? That is still up the road while.
I could see the acquiring of a Kobo actually getting me to read more. Though I am a manga reader primarily I did enjoy going back to my old favourites like Sherlock Holmes and Aesop's Fables while on the reader, it made reading them more enjoyable. Also I am a minimalist and I could see this being an absolute delight to stick books into, and not have shelves of books in the living room.
The price is a real winner too. At $128 right now I wouldn't feel like I am breaking my pocket book for such a swank new toy. (I want one).
So thats it for me, maybe someone who owns one of these has something to add?
