They say that patience is a virtue, and I wish that companies would either release their products the same day they announce it, or not announce it at all. To say that your device or wares are on their way but having to wait for the actual release date can be torture, and it hold true exponentially if the device is highly desirable. Well, Kobo’s Vox eReader is at long last, available at leading retailers throughout the US and the Great White North.
Touted to be the world’s first social eReader, it will enable you to begin conversations, engage in intellectually stimulating topics with your mates as well as other readers without being bogged down by geographical boundaries. Heck, for all you know, you have a Palestinian and a Jew talking to one another about a book without them knowing any better – and that is the way the world should be, where we are one large, happy family.
The Kobo Vox eReader will retail for $199.99 a pop, and I do wonder from time to time whether this device will be able to make kids more sociable in this day and age. If they were to hold digital conversations, how the heck are they going to have decent social skills in the future when they grow up? [Press Release]
