About Them: Inspired by a “Read Freely” philosophy and a passion for innovation, Kobo is one of the world’s fastest-growing eReading services. Read Freely stems from Kobo’s belief that consumers should have the freedom to read any book, anytime, anyplace – and on any device. As a result, Kobo has attracted millions of readers from more than 190 countries and features one of the world’s largest eReading catalogues with over 3 million eBook, newspaper and magazine titles.
Kobo is a site with eReaders for you to buy and read movies. I got the Kobo Touch a simple easy way to read eBooks. When you get your’s, it will have some battery life, enough to get it all set up. Setting up the wireless took a few seconds, then you can set it up through FB or make a new account. I notice it has a bit of an issue with small drop downs which the stylus came in handy. Within about 30 minutes it was all ready to go and use. I like that the Kobo Touch, you’ll never have that problem! With 2 GB of internal memory and the option to expand up to 32 GB with a Micro SD card, Kobo Touch can store up to 30,000 of your favorite eBooks.
When I got mine, came inside a thin cardboard box. When I opened it, inside was the kobo, some instructions and the cord. When I finally turned it on, from the top, there was a blue than green small light by the power button. The screen that is black, and some cream-white color for reading, and black color with the letters. I signed in through FB just to make the time faster. The keyboard is a bit of a second or two slow on responsive. However if you type fast it will catch-all the words and numbers. I love how the screen has sayings per area, hello, goodbye, charging and so forth. Only has 2 colors, and super easy to read from.
The touch screen is pretty responsive, you do however need some patience when it comes to typing. This isn’t like a tablet that is quick, it takes time to get used to. I do like how the screen has icons when it’s on, off, during. The battery you can use for a whole entire month until it needs another charge, since its so light weight, thin, and holds so little it will last forever on the battery. This also has WiFi on it, so you can hook up anywhere on the go, and at coffee shops while enjoying coffee. I like how this is only for books, since eBooks are so small, you will get 100′ s of books before it’s full on GB’s. Another fun and nice feature is the play with the fonts, styles, size, for all your reading styles.
The kobo touch that has many colors to choose from, diamond style ridges on the back. Plus they offer some covers for the eBook, which can come in handy when traveling. This also holds many files on the Kobo Touch. PDF’s and many more. Another great thing it offers, leave it at home on accident?! Be able to reach your books from your phone or tablet. However as usual windows phones are left out.
Kobo Touch delivers a superb reading experience, whether you’re reading the latest eBook or your favorite magazine. That’s because Kobo Touch is fully equipped with a no-glare 6″ Pearl E Ink touchscreen for a print-on-paper reading experience. Because E Ink is actually tiny particles of ink that are mixed in with each pixel on the screen, every word appears sharp and crisp just like a paper book. That’s how Kobo Touch puts the focus on reading: no glare, no distractions, just a great reading experience — even in bright sunlight.
