​The Kobo Vox wasn't a new idea when it was first launched. The e-reader-cum-tablet space already had two big name players, in Barnes and Noble and Amazon. This alone would make entering the market a difficult proposition, but the Vox suffered other...

Neither a great tablet nor reading device, the biggest selling point for the Kobo Vox is that it is good value for money. A better experience can be found elsewhere, whether it's for reading or for more diverse multimedia...

The Kobo Vox may be cheap, but its poor power makes it awkward and frustrating to use. While we like Kobo's ebook service, we don't like the Vox. We recommend using the Kobo app with a better...

It’s here now, and it’s largely competent, with great storage and a decent look and feel. But the sluggish processor is the machine’s biggest problem and is a world away from the effortless-to-use touchscreens we’re used to. Page turning is fine but...

At $199, the price of the Kobo Vox costs exactly the same as the Kindle Fire. So why would anyone opt for Kobo instead of Kindle? That all depends. If you?re a dedicated Kobo buyer who?s built up a sizable library of books you?re not ready to abandon...

While it's relatively affordable, the Kobo Vox is a truly unexceptional Android tablet, with nothing to recommend it over the identically priced Kindle...

The Kobo Vox is a tablet and eReader hybrid and the combo has been well thought through. The screen isn't great outdoors, but the social features may be a lure, and the WHSmith tie in means you've a huge ebook store on tap....

With the holiday season in full force, a lot of gift-givers are going to be considering one of the new color e-readers that have been introduced recently: Amazon's Kindle Fire, the Kobo Vox and Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet. Many people are still...

It's impossible to discuss Kobo's entry into the tablet space without also talking about fellow e-reader makers who have also recently made the leap into tablets. And by that measure, the Vox doesn't look good. It's a piece of last-generation hardware...

With the Amazon Kindle Fire currently US-only, Kobo has missed a great opportunity with the Vox. As the only prominent LCD eBook reader in the run up to Christmas it will no doubt sell well, but satisfied customers will be few and far between....

Despite the previous plus points, we can't let the Kobo Vox off the hook. It is a poorly made, poorly built product with a substandard screen, lacklustre performance and frustratingly unresponsive navigation. For those happy "to read books" an e-ink...

For its slim price tag, the Kobo Vox is an excellent device: although it builds on Kobo's ereader heritage, in fact it offers web browsing, email and a host of other facilities, thanks to the Google Android software it runs.That means, really, it's no...

The Vox's design is almost as unassuming as the Kindle Fire's, and that'd be fine if it didn't feel so poorly made in comparison. While the blue, pink, or green color options may distract from the build quality, the black version I was sent couldn't mask...
