Summary: I spent three hours today trying to put some books onto a kobo mini. As someone who owns a Kindle, spending more than 30-seconds with this process baffled me. Simply put: do not buy, grab a kindle.. not a Kobo. Ugh, Kobo man, Kobo.
Summary: this product did not work. the reader was given to my granddaughter and 2 -provinces later, we have been unable to start up the program to get it fired up for downloading. A second opinion also came to the same conclusion , the reader does not recognize the pc connection on many levels. hoping to get this rectified with the dealer.
Summary: If you do not have a Mastercard, or Visa Debit or Credit card do not buy this. There is nothing said about restricted card types in any of the reviews I have read. My stepdaughter got the Kobo mini from her dad for Christmas, took it home and tried to set it up. Doesn't take Maestro payments (which you don't know until the product is open and tried to set up), so call to Smiths and they won't refund as the package is open..
