I bought a couple (one for my mother) of these today. My first impressions were not favourable with Kobo's set up process and the attempt to mimic Apple into locking the user into the Kobo store ecosystem. These things have 2GB of built in memory and a micro SD expansion slot. The screen looks great, but the touch screen is very laggy. http://www.kobobooks.com/touch I've loaded a couple of books into the built in memory, but haven't been able to get it to register the loaded SD card I inserted. Anybody else have one? Any suggestions to lose the Kobo marketing stuff?
