Summary: First - to address those who are complaining about battery life - are you putting your Kobo to sleep, or powering it off? If you put it to sleep, the battery lasts maybe a couple of days. If you power it off (you hold down power button for 3 seconds, and at the top of the screen, it says "Powered Off"), then the battery seems to last forever. Also turn off the WiFi when not in use - this will suck your battery.
Basic E-Reader but not bad at all with a wonderful costumer service provided by kobo & Brownstem.

Summary: I recently purchased the kobo wireless e-reader from Brownstem through Amazon and I'm happy with it. I don't have much experience dealing with e-readers,but I'm learning.I now own two E-readers the kobo and another one I bought a while ago. The kobo was much more complicated to use and to get it to work was a little tricky comparing to my old E-reader. However,once you learn the how,everything becomes easy.
Summary: A well designed product that is small, thin and light weight. It displays books in black & white, offers two fonts, in five sizes. Therefore it is very simple to operate. Battery life is good for several books, not hours. A neat feature, it can display the book cover of the book being read while in the power off state. Designed for book readers who want to read books.
