    THE BEST THING EVER

    Posted
    Anonymous

    I have been a KOBO fan since I used it on my blackberry some years ago and I will never use anything else. I have both the basic KOBO as well as the VOX and although i dont use the basic anymore I love having the option to. What I like about the VOX is you can use any website to order books from independent book stores to amazon any place that sells ebooks you can buy on your VOX Something you cant do on the other brands. I aslo like the knowlege that my KOBO can be used anywhere in the world and I can use the internet anywhere in the world something I heard the Kindle cant do. The only downside is the video I have not used any movie sites but because it uses Android any nonmobile videos will not play they fixed it for a few days but it went back to not working I beleive their still working to fix this problem. Also something I love about the VOX is the Reading Life feature where you can see what someone has said about the book you are reading as well as earn bagdes which is just fun to do. I love my KOBO VOX and have recently seen Best Buy has one on display now which they didnt have when I bought mine (yes I bought mine the week it came out without even trying it thats how much I love KOBO). I wish they had some carrying cases for them I found one that fits but hopefully now that Best Buy is carrying them they will carry some cases for them as well. Also games work great. You will not be sorry with the KOBO VOX I carry mine with me everywhere!!!! Best thing I ever bought!!!

    I love the vox! Firstly, I get it in pink! How cool is that! Secondly, it does everything I would want it to do without putting a serious dent in my wallet! From facebook to angry birds....this ereader is pretty awesome I must say. I read so much more now...it's just easier. I carry it with me everywhere. I did find it a tad heavy, but aside from that I'm very happy with it. I'm looking forward to the free book a month come 2012!!

    Could not even get past the welcome page

    I bought this as a "cheaper" alternative for my sister while she is in the hospital, compared to the Kindle Fire...WRONG! I now have to take it back to the store because I could not even get past the welcome page. When I called Kobo and finally got to talk to someone it took them all of about 3 minutes to tell me I should just take it back. They had no idea what is wrong with it. Even in the instructions it states you may have to sign on more than once in order to get past the welcome page. All in all...your better off buying the Fire. I have had it for more than a year and have never had any problems.

    The Kobo Vox is like having a small laptop. I can surf the web, play games, watch videos, read my email, download 1000 of apps from GooglePlay And have ALL my books with me. I have my Nook app and Kindle app on my Kobo Vox so when I say All my ebooks I do mean all my ebooks. With the SD card I have download more book (it is an ereader) and pictures and music. yes you can play tunes too.

    Vox is nice, Battery Sucks!

    I've have my Kobo Vox for 9 days. The battery sucks, big time. Not only does the battery suck, but not it will not charge, and won't even turn on.. The Vox, in general, is very cool. Only issues I have is with the battery being awful, and now it doesn't want to even come on. Plan on taking it by my local best buy on the 10th, since it's over an hour away from me.. I have to be in that are that day anyway.

    I bought this for my mother for her birthday as an upgrade from the Velocity Micro Cruz. The screen is a perfect size, the colors are clear and clean, the speaker is delightful and the layout is applaud worthy! I recommend this for anyone who travels a lot or moves around a lot!!!!

    Speakers stink

    I tried watching a Netflix movie could not hear it well enough. Then I tried listening to Pandora with a speaker hooked up. The volume is so low when turned up as high as it will go that the speaker didn't even help. I will be returning and have ordered another brand to try.
