What I like about Kobo is the focus on simplicity and layering on features without getting in the way of "simple". Plus Kobo has an aggressive patch fix / enhancement / upgrade program so that the Kobo you own today is more capable than when you bought it six months ago. Try to get that out of other consumer electronics ... or most competing ereaders.
Wow that was strong.. but accurate. Regardless you are 100 percent correct.. There are features that could be enhanced if KOBO would integrate the work horse into the KDS. That said the driving force of kobo is the reader and their books.. They are here to make money if nothing else.
