Kobo lets users read multiple file format types and falls somewhere in the middle of the file reading capabilities when compared to other manufacturers. (Sony allows for the most file types, and Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble are more proprietary.)

Borders Kobo Review Rating: 90/100

Another large bookstore chain has entered the ereader market. Borders has introduced the Kobo ereader, it features a 6" e-ink screen made by the same manufacturer that supplies the screens for the Kindle and the Nook. One of the interesting features is the back of the unit, it is quilted for a comfortable feel. It uses a 5 way digital pad at the bottom of the unit for navigation and has one gigabyte of internal memory. There is no 3G or WiFi connectivity but it can use USB or Blue Tooth to sync books to the unit. It comes in at a cheaper price than some of it's cosest competitors but it also is lacking in some of the features of those units. Borders Kobo Specifications
