So, as an ereader, the tablet is left wanting. But as a Tablet its really great.
I agree.
The PB would certainly benefit, as an eReader, if it had a better reading app.

The Kobo app is fine if you want to buy books from Kobo all the time. But, oddly, the PB's version of it does not have the "Import" command to get ePubs, while the Android version does!

Yes, I've tried the Book Reader app but, like you, found it wasn't as polished as it could be.

Hopefully RIM will "catch up" and provide better eReader software, as they did (eventually) with the much-improved OS.
