Never order from kobo again. Poor customer service!

Summary: The tablet kept turning off the first time I charged it eventhough the instructions say you can use it while it's charging. I called kobo customer service who said they'd send a replacement tablet along with a return label. That was two months ago and I'm still waiting for my new tablet..
A tablet distracts from reading, and this one has flaw
26 January 2012
Summary: I initially wanted an ereader, because I wanted to read, not be distracted by/having to manage an abundance of Android apps, as I found out using this tablet. The reason I chose a tablet is to bypass the reported problems in reading PDFs, with most ereaders. In this respect, the KV is fairly satisfactory, after installing a file manager and Acrobat's PDF reader, via my computer, not the Viewer that is offered though the device's "Get apps".
Summary: I bought this on recommendation but found that I couldn't verify the VOX with Adobe Digital Essentials so couldn't read the Adobe epub that I had bought. This means that a lot of my preferred books are out of my reach.The system is slow to start up but, when running, the screen is very readable and access to the loaded books is very easy. The Library system is also user friendly.
Pros: Handy size. Easy to use once loaded.
Cons: Very slow. I can't download Adobe DRM epubs.
