But does the Kobo Vox offer enough to keep British bookworms happy?. You wouldn't want to hold up a big 10-inch slate for hours on end as you made your way through Lady Chatterley's Lover, so thankfully the Vox has been given a manageable 7-inch screen. That should please those of you wanting to get elbow deep in an ebook. Whether a 7-inch display on a tablet is a good thing or not depends on what you want to use it for. On the one hand, it's just about small enough to fit into a large jeans pocket or a small shoulder bag, but on the other, it isn't the best tablet for sofa-surfers kicking back and scrolling around the web.
At 13.4mm thick, it's a pretty chunky beast, especially compared to the 9mm of Apple's iPad 2, With a heft splatoon 2 iphone case of 402g, it's not exactly lightweight, But svelte design usually comes with a premium, and there's certainly a lot of people who'd be happy to sacrifice millimetres in order to save a few tenners, so we're not going to complain too much, The back of the tablet has been given a rubberised raised diamond effect that's quite attractive, The grippy coating makes holding the tablet in one hand much easier, However, the construction material does feel a little cheap and it offers a rather plasticky sound if you drum your fingers on it..
Around the edges are a volume rocker, a power button, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro-USB port and a microSD card slot. The latter is handy, given the meagre 8GB of internal storage, and it's something that isn't on offer on the Kindle Fire. There's no camera around the back, but for the price, that's acceptable. Cameras on cheap tablets tend to be appalling pieces of tat that we could do without so we're not complaining about this omission. Those of you hoping to get in some video calling with a front-facing camera are out of luck too.
Kobo offers a very similar ebooks service to Amazon, Set up a free account and you can go about browsing the digital library, One of Kobo's biggest draws is the size of its collection, It offers over 2 million titles, of which 1 million are free to download, That's a sizeable chunk more than Amazon offers, so if you want free literature, then Kobo is worth checking out, As far as prices go, JRR Tolkien's The Lord of The Rings is £12.99 on splatoon 2 iphone case both Kobo and Kindle and Daniel Tammet's Born on a Blue Day (an excellent insight into high-functioning autism) is £4.99 on both, Professor Robert Winston's Human Instinct is slightly cheaper for Kindle at £6.44, undercutting Kobo's £7.49 price tag..
We found that prices were generally pretty similar, with Amazon having a slight edge over Kobo. Using the service is very straightforward too -- create an account, browse the collection and start adding titles to your personal library. When you put your account information into the Vox tablet, your books will automatically download over Wi-Fi. We found the whole process to be hassle-free. It could be managed by even the most technologically impaired. The Kobo service is open to anyone though -- as the Kobo app can be downloaded on any Android or iOS device, you don't need to have a Kobo tablet in order to buy books.
