    The Kobo Vox has a 7-inch (1024 x 600) AFFS + multi-touch display. The battery life is at Kobo at 8 hours, 8 GB of internal memory is installed, and the memory can be expanded via an SD card to 32 GB. Under the hood, potter about the Android version 2.3 "Gingerbread", a 800 MHz processor and 512MB RAM. Of course, a built-in speaker and headphones are available. It comes to the Internet via the integrated wireless LAN (802.11 b / g / n). The best part: The Kobo Vox will have access to Android Market. What do you think? Is it worth the purchase consideration? Also do check this thread as this threads have discussion about how to add firefox in Kobo Tablet.

Incidentally, it is equipped with e-ink pearl, which is also found on the latest reading lights competition (Kindle DX, PRS600 etc.). This is the second generation of electronic ink whose main advantages are:

    I would prefer Kindle Fire is can be the right choice for many; there are many advantages of this tablet. You can compress movies to play on it, show your photos, listen to MP3s, and of course, read newspapers, magazines and books!

    Amazon Kindle fire functions
    • 1 GHz dual-core processor
    • 7 "color display running 1024X600 resolution
    • 8 GB of online storage space
    • Amazon Appstore Access to Android apps for sale on Amazon AppStore

    We can also use Firefox in this tablet actually I don’t know about Kobo Tablet if we can use Firefox in it.

    Kobo Tablet is not a very popular tablet. Definitely does not compare with the Kindle and Nook Fire Tablet, both as observe the processor, on average, less powerful, is achieve for the reviews, not brilliant but if you have this model, you may want to get root rights to extend as far as achievable, the potential.

    Most advanced multimedia TOUCHSCREEN in Kobo Tablet. It has good multi-touch screen, readers can see the text with high contrast resolution and throw you into themselves in videos, magazines, books and games in vivid color. Kobo uses the latest 7-inch AFFS display with anti-glare - the same technology used in aircraft cockpits (There are no clouds at 30.000 feet) - great for reading indoors or outdoors and with an extra-wide viewing angle for incredible and ideal Shared reading and reflection.
