Summary: The Kobo Glo is an incredibly simple device, matching Amazon’s Kindle in its user-friendliness and gradual learning curve. It makes finding and buying books nearly seamless, although Amazon still has a slight edge in pricing and range of books. The Glo is almost as refined as is possible for a touchscreen e-reader.
Pros: Utterly simple to use, Screen lighting is excellent, Accessible price
Cons: Kindle Store offers more books at better prices, Wi-Fi easy to forget
