Is there any room for another eReader in this market?

The Kobo eReader, already available for pre-order in Canada, is expected to be sold at Borders by the summer. Pricing is $149 CDN, less than other similar products. See the comparison at . It can be preordered online at or in Canadian bookstores Indigo, Chapters, and Coles.

Formerly known as Shortcovers, Kobo is a device neutral platform with a service providing more than 2 million ebooks for sale at that can be viewed on all devices - desktop, select smartphones and tablets. Now they're releasing their own eReader. It comes pre-loaded with 100 free ebooks, and can carry up to 1000 ebooks at once with its 1 GB of storage or as many as 4,000 books with an additional SD memory card (up to 4 GB). The long-life battery charge lasts up to 2 weeks (8000 page-turns in 'Book Years') and the device comes with bluetooth connectivity and USB cable.
