Kobo, $179 kobo­books.com


The best of the bunch, the Kobo Touch works with finger swipes that

should be fa­mil­iar to smart­phone users. This makes it easy to use out of

the box with­out re­sort­ing to the man­ual. It weighs 185g and has 2GB of stor­age, which can be ex­panded to 32GB with an SD card to hold up to

30,000 books. It uses the E Ink dis­play tech­nol­ogy pop­u­lar with many e-book read­ers and sup­ports EPUB, PDF and MOBI file stan­dards, plus jpg im­ages and comic book stan­dards of CBZ and CBR, although with its 6-inch black-and-white screen colour comics are not go­ing to look like the printed ver­sions. Kobo has a down­loads site, mak­ing fill­ing it eas­ier. Of­fice­works

will carry it within the month.
