It looks like some good news has been announced for those who either have, or have been considering the purchase of a Kobo Vox reader — a new software update will bring access to Google Play. Simply put, this update, while maybe not important to EVERYONE, should be welcomed by many and perhaps more to the point, has offered a rather nice perk as compared to the Kindle Fire and the Nook readers.
That thought aside though, the Kobo Vox update is available for users at the moment and will be automatically downloaded the next time your device is connected to the internet. Dan Leibu, the CTO of Kobo Inc stated that;
“Having access to the thousands of games, apps and tools offered by Google Play makes the Kobo Vox an eReader and so much more.”
And well, what can we say — we agree. After all, one of the main complaints we saw from users was the lack of available apps for the Kobo Vox. Bottom line, that has since been taken care of. Otherwise, for those who happen to be curious, the Kobo Vox is currently selling for $179.99 and brings features to include a 7-inch FFS+ (1024 x 600) display, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, battery life of up to 7 hours and Wi-Fi connectivity.
