Kobo Touch

CNET

  • Summary: Though the Kobo eReader Touch Edition doesn't quite measure up to the Nook Touch or the Kindle, it's a respectable and affordable touch-screen e-reader with a lot of pluses.
  • Cons: The Kobo's user interface isn't as slick as that of the Nook Touch, and its performance and overall smoothness could be improved. It lacks audio support (no MP3, no audiobooks) and the ability to lend out titles to friends. The magazine and newspaper selection is lackluster.

Kobo eReader Touch Edition

PC Magazine
30 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The Kobo eReader Touch Edition brings a nice touch interface and a small footprint to Kobo's ebook reader line, but its performance and design don't measure up to its best competitors.
  • Pros: Light and small. Crisp 6-inch E Ink screen. Syncs with Kobo apps on other devices. Simple, distraction-free reading experience.
  • Cons: Occasionally slow and laggy. No hardware buttons for turning pages. Setup requires a computer. Social features are more gimmicky than useful.

Playlist Kobo eReader Touch Edition

  • Excerpt: (1 items) It’s rare to find an inexpensive product that also introduces innovation into its category. And yet that’s exactly what Kobo Books’ Kobo eReader Touch Edition does. The company’s third-generation e-reader, this model is the smallest and lightest 6-inch E Ink e-reader currently available. At $130 (as of June 13, 2011), it’s also the cheapest e-reader with a touchscreen, besting Barnes and Noble’s touchscreen Nook by $10.
  • Pros: Responsive touchscreen, Less page-turn flicker than before, Light weight
  • Cons: Some echoes of previous page's display, Slow shopping procedure

Kobo Touch

cellphones.ca
31 January 2014
  • Excerpt: The Kobo eReader Touch is a lot like the Barnes and Noble Nook. It is much smaller than the Amazon Kindle, and does not have a physical keyboard. Instead it is touch screen, coming in at six inches in height and 0.7 inches in thickness. This makes it lighter and smaller than both the Nook and the Kindle. The eReader has the same Pearl E Ink technology as most eReaders in the market today.
