Kobo eReader Touch Edition

Kobo's not the first name you'd think of when naming ebook reader manufacturers, nor is it the second. Those honors, I'd wager, go to Amazon and Barnes & Noble, respectively (though Barnes & Noble's new Nook Touch Reader ($139, 4.5 stars) might flip that...Read more

Light and small. Crisp 6-inch E Ink screen. Syncs with Kobo apps on other devices.

Occasionally slow and laggy. No hardware buttons for turning pages. Setup requires a computer.
