Criteria Comments Rating
- Display / readability Crisp and clear. You couldn't ask for a better display.
- Battery life I've had to charge it once in the several months I've had it, though I think that's typical of most eReaders.
- Store and selection of titles For the Canadian market, Kobo has the biggest selection.
- Ease of use It's intuitive and the UI is slick and charming. It makes you want to use it.
- Document support No comments
- Storage capacity It says it stores several thousand books. I doubt I'll ever find out if that's true.
- Durability It's sturdy and you can toss it around. Not once have I ever feared breaking it.
- Design and form factor It's a gorgeous eReader that sits very comfortably in your hands. The soft finish makes it outright appealing to hold.
- Portability (size / weight) It sits in my messenger big with nary a notice. Its weight is ideal for something you are holding while reading.
As a Canadian, the Kobo eReader Touch is the clear choice. The available titles from the major American eReader manufacturers are nowhere near those that are available through Kobo in Canada. Also, Kobo is a Canadian product, so not only is it the best option in terms of library, it's also a patriotic investment.
