Kobo Vox introduced
Kobo has launched what they deem to be the world’s first social e-book reader device in the form of the Kobo Vox – and to know just what kind of device this is, we will look at it in closer detail right after this. Already supporting more than 5 million users worldwide, the new Kobo Vox e-book reader was inspired by “Vox Populi”, which means the voice of the people. I guess you can more or less figure out the direction where the Kobo Vox is heading – it basically wants to empower readers to begin conversations with other readers in their journey of discovering new books and authors via their respective social networks.
In order to keep up with the times, good implementation of software and apps need to be accompanied by hardware that is relevant, and the Kobo Vox certainly epitomizes that thanks to a vivid color display, so that the digital reading experience is taken to a totally new level with additional content to keep you entertained and stoked all the time, ranging from rich color books to newspapers, magazines, games, music, video, games and social feeds, all working on an open Android platform.
To put it in a nutshell, the Kobo Vox was built by readers for readers, where ordinary folks are able to access their whole library wherever they are, carrying it in an easy to hold, lightweight design that has a comfortable quilted back. The Kobo Vox will come in Hot Pink, Lime Green, Ice Blue and Jet Black colors, and has enough storage space to stash away up to 8,000 digital books, while maxing out the expandable storage would mean you can tote around 40,000 books with you without being bogged down by physical media.
Developed on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform, you will be able to have the freedom to customize your experience in order to best suit your personal needs and preferences when doing your reading. Just how much do you have to fork out for this puppy? We are looking at a relatively affordable $199.99 with pre-orders being taken already, hitting the US and Canada first.
