Kobo eReader Touch Edition

PC Magazine
2 December 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.

Review: Kobo E-Reader Touch Edition

Wired
24 August 2011
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: less than comparable Kindle and Nook, making it the cheapest, smallest and lightest e-reading in the pack. Nicely motivates by projecting both the fun and sport of reading.
  • Cons: 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 does not come with an AC adapter, in...

Kobo Touch

  • 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.

Kobo eReader Touch Edition

Pocket Lint
25 November 2011
  • Conclusion: We've seen a number of ebook readers that, although technically proficient, don't always impress. With the Kobo eReader we're more impressed because there is a whole system to explore and the service rivals that offered by the Amazon Kindle.
  • Pros: Cross-device syncing, EPUB support means you can shop around for the best deals, well built
  • Cons: Some functions only apply to books you buy from the Kobo store, not to sideloaded content

Kobo Touch

PC Mag
11 July 2013
  • Conclusion: O Kobo Touch tem uma interface sensível ao toque muito boa e quase não deixa marca nas transições de páginas. Mas seu desempenho o distancia um pouco dos melhores competidores.
  • Pros: Pequeno e leve. Tela E-Ink de 6" nítida. Sincroniza com apps Kobo em outros dispositivos. Experiência de leitura simples e livre de distrações.
  • Cons: Ocasionalmente lento e não-responsivo. Recursos de redes sociais são mais problemáticos do que úteis.

Kobo eReader Touch [Test]

Blogue de Geek
5 December 2011
  • Conclusion: La Kobo eReader Touch est une bonne petite liseuse qui est fort appréciable pour la lecture de livrels, mais dès que l’on demande un peu plus d’effort à son processeur, on est vite refroidi.
  • Pros: Petit, léger et conviviale, Compatible avec presque tous les formats, 2Go extensibles avec une microSD
  • Cons: Performances décevantes, Lecture de PDF difficile
