Engadget Review

Kobo's upped its game since the bitterly disappointing Vox, but this 7-incher just doesn't offer enough to distinguish itself from the competition.

Pros
  • Open Google Play access
  • Up to 64GB of storage
  • Rugged design
Cons
  • Bulky design
  • Uninspired Android skinning
  • Content selection spread out over three stores
