Image Gallery: Hands-on with the $149 Kobo eReader

Summary: Dedicated ebook readers have been around for a couple of years and now we are seeing the price drop into the range than more people will find attractive. Kobo did an excellent job with the eReader device in most respects and the eInk reading experience is quite good. There could be some improvements made to the ebook management software on the device, but reading is a pleasure.

  • I appreciate these pictures

    Thanks for the effort of taking "all" of these pictures; this really helps me understand the true details of these readers.
    The Kobo has some really good features (rubber buttons, soft back, etc). Because of your pics I can make a good decision!
