Kobo and the Vox
Kobo is joining the ereader/tablet movement with their just-announced Vox, dubbed "the People's eReader." Selling for $199.99 and shipping as of October 28, it runs Android 2.3 and promises easy web browsing, e-mail, and access to "over 15,000 hot music, video and game apps." It weighs 14.2 ounces (lighter than Nook Color or Kindle Fire), and a vibrating Kobo pulse icon signifies pages with more social activity. Kobo says it comes with three free color ebooks.
Personally, I wonder about the internet and apps. To get absorbed in a book, I have to get as far away as possible from the computer, as the constant impulse to check for email is so distracting. And the last thing a reader needs is social activity!But here, for your edification, is the promotion ....
- Vivid 7" multimedia screen
- Brilliant color books for all ages
- New social reading experience
- Web, email and apps for Android™!
