The $150 Kobo e-reader is a good value, but sadly the performance was lacking and there was no wireless connectivity. Well, now it’s back with an updated version that fixes both issues. As a bonus, it’s selling for $10 cheaper now.

The new Kobo Wireless eReader adds WiFi, enabling on-device book downloads whenever you’re in range of a hotspot. There’s also a new processor to speed it up. The device comes in your choice of three colors (black, silver, and lavender), and it’s currently up for pre-order now at Borders.

Here’s yet another choice of eBook store for you to use. Borders has launched its own Kobo-powered eBook store. The bookstore should offer pretty much the same selection as the existing Kobobooks site, though Borders might throw in some special pricing and promotions.

Borders will also be launching its own versions of the Kobo eBook app, which will be available for the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android. Amazon and Barnes & Noble pretty much own the eBook market, with Borders currently targeting a 17 percent market share.

Kobo eReader for $150

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2010

Kobo has unveiled their own eBook reader and it looks like a good affordable option for those who don’t want to buy a Kindle or Nook. The Kobo eReader lacks 3G, but there is a lot to like here. Just look at that quilted, vinyl back and you can skin the face with a cloth or leather facade. Most of the buttons are on the side because you have a blue navigational pad in front. It comes equipped with 1GB of storage, but will handle a 4GB SD card.

The device supports EPUB or PDF transfered over USB, and you can sync via Bluetooth across devices loaded with Kobo’s app. This one should be pretty popular.
