I have been dreaming about a tablet for a long time. I either could not afford it or the cheap ones had no features that I wanted. It seems that I found my true love. It is sleek and connected to my favorite bookseller (I bought many books from Powell's). Since my eyesight is getting a little worse (age - you know), portable -the perfect solution and mobility and the apps will help me consulting "live" dictionaries for my Italian course.

I am very intrested in Kobo! This sounds just what I have been looking for. I want to know if they play netflix (one of last thing my Nook e-reader does still) or even better read the color comics? How long does the battery work with heavy use on this Arc. Perfect timing for me to read about this I will be going to Powells for my summer trips to Portland and my Nookcolor is in need of replacement as it only plays a few books for my child now and will not download anymore, they belive it just needs rebooting though thats been done 4 times in store and two at home. I miss reading on an e-reader very much. I nevery thought I would miss an e-reader till I had one. I will be taking my next trip to Portland with a mission to look these over. Thank you for letting me know about them.
