Kobo eReader Touch Edition Demo Video from Kobo on Vimeo.
I've never been much for touch screen anything. The thought of fingerprints on my screens is enough to drive me crazy. It's why I won't buy an iPad (though I can't deny the experience is great). It's why I hesitate with an iPhone (though my next phone will probably be one as long as hubby gets me those anti-fingerprint screen protectors he promised). The Sony Touch Reader holds no appeal to me. Yet - this one intrigues me.
I don't know if it's the price point ($140ish) or the seemingly simple interface. Perhaps it's the integration of Reading Life, Kobo's social reading platform. Either way - I know I'll be moseying down to Chapters next month to see if it's worth the fuss.
A girl can always use a backup reader, right?
