There are evidently a number of problems with the new Vox tablet just released by Kobo. GoodEReader has an article about them and how to get around some of them. It covers:
charging and power issues
Kobo server errors on Library
no way to browse files or content copied to the Vox
can’t find apps
user manual glitsched
YouTube videos not working
tablet upgrade errors, and more.
The article goes on to say:
Kobo has a track record of rushing devices to the market quickly and this results in many bugs with the firmware and device. The company has a great development team and normally issues a copious amount of firmware updates to resolve any problems. The Kobo Touch has only been on the market a few months and has already received 5 major updates that dramatically increases the functionality. The one cool thing about Canadian based Kobo is that they really listen to their users and the community. Often people will request features and they will be incorporated into the next build.
Many users are asking us via email and in comments on our reviews of the Vox if they should return it. It is a matter of perspective, it just hit the market and they should fix most of the major problems in short order. There is no getting around the the 512 MB of RAM and 800 MHZ single core processor. There are faster and more robust devices in the market right now but the Vox is a great device for international users. I would suggest to exercise a bit of patience with this new gadget and wait for some updates to fix some problems.
