Excerpt: In the race for the best 7-inch tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet have zoomed past the competition with sub-$250 price points and well-rounded reading and app selections. But a third competitor with similar tactics has just suited up to take the track: Kobo’s Vox.
Pros: Easy to sideload apps, Looks decent from afar, Good selection of books
Cons: Feels cheap, Screen can be unresponsive, Software is sluggish, Much slower than the Fire or Nook Tablet
Conclusion: The compromise you have to make with the Kobo Vox is clear: it is good value for money and you get a tablet that has been reasonably well built and offers a wide variety of features. But you get neither the best tablet experience nor the best reading device.
Pros: Cheap, Kobo's modifications make itservices easy to get into
Cons: It's neither the best solution for reading, nor the best for a tablet, battery life is poor, lacks Google certification
Excerpt: Kobo has set itself up as the biggest rival to Amazon for eBooks, with its own range of rather good eReaders (such as the Kobo eReader Touch ), its own store and even a range of apps so that you can continue reading your books on any device.
Summary: Hot on the heels of the Kobo Wireless and the Kobo Touch comes the Kobo Vox – the latest addition to the Canadian brand’s ereader arsenal and another UK exclusive for WH Smith.

Excerpt: Some people would have you think that the Kobo Vox is the device of choice if you are looking for an Android tablet that’s good for a little bit of mobile browsing and for a little bit of e-book reading on the go.
Summary: Kobo Vox è un tablet da 7 pollici equipaggiato con sistema operativo Android 2.3 Gingerbread, supporto agli input multitouch e funzionalità avanzate legate alla fruizione di contenuti multimediali, soprattutto eBook
Conclusion: C’est assez rare que je teste des gadgets auquels je donne une mauvaise note, mais dans le cas de la Kobo Vox eReader , je ne peux pas trouver de défaite à cette tablette qui semble avoir été commercialisé avec un prix abordable au détriment de la qualité matériel.
Cons: Performance médiocre, Latence frustrante, Google Play non-disponible
