Bye bye Kobo

I got one of the first US Kobos yesterday, and after I figured out that I was having problems because I had a corrupted epub (fixed by reconverting it in Calibre) I was enjoying it. Then I bought a book from Kobo, started reading it, turned the reader off--and couldn't get it to boot. It always came to the welcome screen and froze. Kobo service told me there was nothing to do but return it, and I would end up waiting weeks for a replacement. Since I'm not the only one who's had this problem I decided to give up. BestBuy here has the Sony Touch for $200 with a free case. too bad--I like the look and feel of the Kobo a lot. But I couldn't stand the aggravation....
