The e-book reader market is certainly a growing and competitive one – especially for a country like the US where plenty of people get their reading done while they are on a subway or taking public transport somewhere. With so many e-book readers to choose from, just which would you gun for? Kobo has just announced their latest Kobo Touch that will retail for $99 a pop, in addition to other promotions associated with Kobo’s range of e-book readers. Well, we will focus on just the Kobo Touch today, where it sports a new software that paves the way for extended customization without spoiling the overall experience.
Just what will this Kobo Touch model deliver? For starters, it is that cheap because it will be an ad-supported e-book reader, so your attempt to escape from all forms of online advertising fails miserably yet again, but I would presume it is a small matter to bear with some ads while your pocket stays heavier just in case the rainy day starts to pour really heavy. At least these ads won’t make a pest of themselves, appearing only when the Kobo Touch reader is turned off or has entered sleep mode. [Press Release]
