The eReader market just got crowded. Borders just introduced the Kobo eReader for $150. It’s set to compete with Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes & Noble’s Nook. The Kobo offers users access to over 1 million eBooks via USB or wireless Bluetooth.
Unfortunately, there is no WiFi support. The Kobo comes pre-loaded with over 100 classic books. It’s capable of storing 1000 titles in less than 1GB of flash memory. The Kobo can read a number of eReader formats including PDF, ePUB and Adobe DRM.
Here’s a Kobo eReader review.
One last thing, the battery life is 2 weeks. It’s a cheaper alternative to Amazon’s Kindle.
