This sounds way cool and it comes in different colors. Kobo released its Android tablet yesterday priced at $199. "Vivid 7" FFS+ multimedia screen optimized for reading outdoors." (Wow. My Nook stinks outside.) Kobo Vox
"Kobo is the only electronic bookseller to allow users to export their purchases to other platforms - unlike Amazon, Welch said. "What people don't realize is when you buy a Kindle you're marrying Jeff Bezos," Welch said, referring to Amazon's chief executive."
Here's a review from PC Magazine Move Over Kindle Fire.
The proprietary readers are not a good thing and I think consumers realize that. I'm happier with the Nook since I rooted it and can get to the Android OS--I'm not saying I use it more, but I like being able to. It's a huge drain on the battery life. Sure some people are annoyed by anything but a reading device--I can't explain their psychology. Cranky bears or something.
