  • Conclusion: The Kobo Wireless eReader adds some of the features the first Kobo was lacking, which makes it a viable competitor to the Kindle and the Nook.
  • Pros: Attractive design. Very lightweight. ePub file support. Simple to operate. Integrated Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: Shorter battery life than some competitors. No AC adapter in box. D-pad isn't always the easiest way to navigate.

  • Excerpt: The Good Competitve price. Simple, comfortable interface. Light, very comfortable design. Universal ePub support; some drag-and-drop. E Ink battery and eye benefits. Part of a multi-device ecosystem. SD card slot. Two-week battery offline. The Bad Kindle and Nook do more with Wi-Fi. Wireless drains battery quickly. On-screen keyboard slow to use. Usual e-paper slowness. No file support beyond ePub and PDF. Bluetooth of limited help.
