It really bugs me that the Vox wouldn't have half the reader functions of the Touch or the Kobo reader. Isn't it supposed to be a step up from those models? No wonder the scathing review by The Verge condemned it as a poor reader and a poor tablet.

I think you will find that currently, the pressure is on to solve the various basic issues; once that is done, the app. team will be concentrate on more functionality.
Well, maybe people who didn't really want an eReader, but a cheap tablet toy wouldn't be concerned, but Kobo, being a premier eReader should have at least incorporated all its eReader functions in the Vox.
