It's a great shame, as otherwise the Kobo could be the perfect choice for those looking for a cheap Android tablet. If movies and general app use are your priorities it's well worth a look, but if music matters there are better options...80

The flexibility of the Kobo Arc is one of it's greatest appeals against the likes of the Kindle or Nook, but Kobo's additions add little to the experience over the already impressive Nexus 7. Worth considering, but you have plenty of...80
