At A Glance

Kobo's Android 2.3-based tablet offers a social-reading-focused, value-priced alternative to the big guns.

This slim, lightweight e-reader is eminently pocketable and has a responsive touchscreen, but it lacks the finesse of its competition.

The Kobo eReader's main appeal is to those who prefer ePub files; for now, this is the least expensive Wi-Fi-connected ePub-compatible model, and it handles the format well.

E-reader is easy on the wallet, but expect to make compromises on performance and usability.
