This e-reader uses Pearl E Ink, which Kobo eReader Touch Edition E-Book Reader reviews have lauded as the industry standard. This of course means that the screen can only show black and white text and illustrations. The Home screen shows icons for the user’s library, the Reading Life reading app and the Kobo store.
Among the four of the biggest e-book reader manufacturers, Kobo is the only company that prides itself as a solely e-book reader manufacturer. Barnes & Noble, Amazon and Sony, the other three, are already giants in their other businesses. Yet, Kobo has positioned itself as the kid trying to enter the big leagues with its products. But despite being the smallest among the four leaders of the e-reader manufacturers, Kobo has managed to carve its niche in the market, and has made its presence known. But then, when Kobo announced its new product, the eReader Touch, Barnes & Noble also called attention to its new gadget only one day after. To make matters more interesting, the eReader Touch Edition that Kobo presented looks much like the new generation Nook that Barnes & Noble launched. The two devices bear so much resemblance that it is almost impossible to read a Kobo eReader Touch Edition E-Book Reader review without it being compared to the second generation Nook.
