    • A. Yes, this Kobo ereader does have Wifi capability. I don't think that there are many ereaders that don't.

    • A. I just purchased a Lilac Kobo and it is wireless...really cool! You can go to the Kobo website and purchase books to download. They also have more free titles on their website as well.

    I bought this because I wanted a daily use eReader that I could commute with then I could leave my expensive one at home. This thing more then delivered and has quickly become my primary reading device. Books purchased via Kobo appear right on the device. Then I used Calibre to put the other books on. If you have any eReader and you don't know about Calibre, Google it Now! I really like how all the books show up as book covers on a shelf and when the device goes to sleep the cover of the book you are reading becomes the screensaver. The only drawback I can think of is the fact that the navigation button is only on the one side so you are limited as to how you hold the device, but it is very light weight.

    I am an avid reader and when seeing the Amazon Kindle commercials come on all the time, it convinced me that maybe I should get an ereader. I went to Walmart and of course they didn't have a big selection. Just the Kobo, so I bought it on a whim since I really wanted one. So far I love the eink screen; very easy on the eyes. I don't think it is at all complicated getting it to work and understanding how to work it. I wouldn't recommend this to older folks who aren't tech savvy unless they have someone to help them with it. That's just my opinion though. (I have a mom who I know I need to explain it too.) The only things I don't like about it.. - Walmart only comes with black when you can get it else where in different colors. - When you are turning the pages, it is slow and it scrambles the words for like a second, which I find annoying. - I do not like the directional pad. When you are pressing a direction you can press accept (the middle of the keypad) on accident. That's about it. :-)

    Just bought the Kobo eReader and even my friends (who own the Kindle and Nook) agree that the Kobo is the best value for the price. You can customize how you want the screen to look, it has 100 free books pre-installed (about 30 of which I actually want to read), and it was extremely easy to set up and use.

    I am really enjoying this E-reader! My husband had gotten a Kindle for his Birthday, so I was comparing the Kobo to that. While it doesn't have some of the same features as the Kindle, it does have some that I like better. It is easy to use, and I love how light it is. I did have a little trouble with setting it up with our wireless, but once I figured it out...it's been fine. It does not have the keyboard feature, like the Kindle, but I don't really mind that. I've been able to shop for books, and LOVE the fact that it comes with 100 classics already loaded on it!! WOW! VERY happy with my Kobo!!
