Actually, I think that Kobo is giving you more choice. They have kepubs which use their DRM and they have epubs which use Adobe DRM. Most other shops only have the Adobe DRM. And Kobo and the other shops handle this in the same way.
As to price, whenever I search, the Kobo price has been the same as others. Plus, I have been using Kobo promo codes for most books, so it is cheaper.
