The Kobo Touch is a sleek device that trades buttons for a touch display, so all interactions are accomplished through swipes and taps. Text can be displayed in seven fonts with an impressive 17 sizes available. Other features include highlighting support and a basic web browser.
The Touch includes Wi-Fi, but it requires setup with a Mac or PC, so those without a computer need not apply. For content, the Touch can read files from most bookstores, including more than 2.3 million books, 99 percent of The New York Times bestsellers, and eLending books from local libraries.
