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.

Kobo's E-Reader Scores Bonus Points With Social Reading Game

With touchscreens making their way into the e-reader market, the timing is right for the arrival of Kobo's touch-equipped device. But the Kobo Touch remains an also-ran to Barnes & Noble's Nook and Amazon's Kindle , both of which are much more popular....Read more

$10 less than comparable Kindle and Nook, making it the cheapest, smallest and lightest e-reading in the pack.

Faux-quilted plastic back sacrifices ergonomics. Touch screen is sometimes slow. Main page is utilitarian, illustrating only the books you are currently reading offering boring links to your library, the store and "Reading Life." Weak battery performance.

Kobo Touch

The Kobo Touch is light, portable and decently priced for a touch screen ebook reader. However, it lacks audio, so you can't play music or audio books, and there's no 3G version. We're OK with that, but we do find the Kobo Touch slower than the Barnes & N...Read more
