Known as “world’s first social eReader” Kobo Vox is a multi-use tablet. It offers access to unlimited storage in the kobo cloud, where readers start conversations, share views and leave reviews by ‘liking’, ‘disliking’ or commenting in real-time with others reading the same book. kobo claims that it is the first e-reading platform to be integrated with facebook ticker and timeline.
And in 2012, Kobo released its new generation tablet, Kobo Arc. To be honest, I think this is the most beautiful Android tablet (you know why I only say Andorid..) in my eye. And the Kobo Arc uses the same operation system with Kobo Vox. So this guide also suits for Kobo Arc.
It is no doubt that Amazon eBook Store’s capacity is times larger than Kobo eBook Store, what if you are a Kobo user and want to buy an eBook, which can’t be found in Kobo Store but was sold in Amazon? That would be a little awkward. Some experienced users must know that we can install Kindle app on Kobo as it is an Android based tablet. But I believe many eBook lovers like me have our own regular reading app and we have been used to use this app to read, to take note and clipping, and even to manage our ebooks collection. But I can assure you that only Kindle app can read Amazon Kindle books.
