External reviews of Kobo Touch
  • Kobo eReader Touch Edition

    Plus

    • Light and small
    • Crisp 6-inch E Ink screen
    • Syncs with Kobo apps on other devices
    • Simple, distraction-free reading experience

    Minus

    • Occasionally slow and laggy
    • No hardware buttons for turning pages
    • Setup requires a computer
    • Social features are more gimmicky than useful

    Conclusion
    The Kobo eReader Touch Edition brings a nice touch interface and a small footprint to Kobo's ebook reader line, but its performance and design don't measure up to its best competitors.

  • Kobo Touch

    Plus

    • is a compact, lightweight, and affordable e-ink e-reader with touch-screen navigation, built-in Wi-Fi, an expansion slot for additional memory, and good battery life (over one month with wireless off). Also, the Kobo e-book store is integrated into the device, and you get a basic Web browser.

    Minus

    • The Kobo's user interface isn't as slick as that of the Nook Touch, and its performance and overall smoothness could be improved. It lacks audio support (no MP3, no audiobooks) and the ability to lend out titles to friends. The magazine and newspaper selection is lackluster.

    Conclusion
    Though the Kobo eReader Touch Edition doesn't quite measure up to the Nook Touch or the Kindle, it's a respectable and affordable touch-screen e-reader with a lot of pluses.
