Summary: I had to have this replaced under warranty, the screen is not very touch sensitive and although the reading experience and support infrastructure (shop, downloading etc.) are ok I think buyers would be less than totally satisfied with it.
Summary: Pros: 1) Great eink screen. 2) Great touch screen. 3) Long battery life 4) Good dictionary definitions of English words. 5) Translation dictionaries from English to Spanish, German, French, Italian and vice versa Cons: 1) The software does not have the option to create my own catalogs for my books.
Summary: The Good: I received my Kobo Touch for Christmas. I enjoy reading with my it. The screen is terrific for reading, even in our bright Florida sunshine, and the font size, line spacing and margins very customizable to accommodate nearly every reader's needs.
Setting up was a problem but once set up the Kobo is a decent device

Summary: Setting up was a nightmare, Kobo set up procedure is not user friendly at all. I only bought it for the free ebooks option from my library otherwise I would have gone for the Amazon Kindle. Delivery from supplier itself was fast and trouble free.
isn't quite slick perfection, but it's not far off and it feels just splendid in your hand.

Summary: The Kobo Touch is, without doubt, the friendliest eReader we've ever had the pleasure to meet. It smiles when in sleep mode, it says `please' when it needs more battery juice, and it has a lovely smooth padded-effect case which we find perversely pleasing to the touch.
A limited and limiting experience if you're used to good books.

Excerpt: I'd dabbled with the thought of an ebook reader for a while, but really couldn't justify the purchase. I tried a friend's Kindle and simply wasn't impressed - far too much attention to DRM and not enough to the customer.
Excerpt: The Kobo is an ereader that runs android (but some basic form of it). My dad got it for last mothers day priced 160 pounds. It is available now from WHS for much cheaper (I saw it there for around 90 pounds the other day (we bought it when tablets were still a relatively new thing).
Excerpt: I have had the Kobo Touch for a year now, and did a fair bit of research before choosing between the main two rivals of the Kobo and the Kindle and hopefully my review will help someone else make the same choice.

Summary: Le premier livré avait un problème de batterie. J'ai dû contacter le marchand qui l'a remplacé après quelques courriels courtois. Le processus m'a semblé un peu hésitant mais ça a fonctionné. Le deuxième fonctionne normalement et je suis satisfait du produit.
