KoboGlow wifi capabilities

Will the new KoboGlow be able to connect to Dropbox? Trying to decide between the new Kindle Paperwhite with Glow and the KoboGlow. Leaning towards Kobo this time, but would like to use Dropbox rather than a sync cable. Thanks.

I suspect the Kobo Glo won't have Dropbox. But then likely neither while the Kindle PaperWhite. A quick search didn't show any mention of Kindle PaperWhite explicitly mentioning DropBox.

I say that because the DropBox software developers have to create programs which run on the various devices. More popular devices such as Windows, Mac, Android or iPad makes a lot of sense. But do the devices where the demand is much less? Doubtful although possible.

That sad I think the Kobo Touch is a stripped down Linux variant so it's possible. Who knows.

How about auto-delivery for periodicals? Does Kobo currently support this?

Depends how you want to define this. If you buy a newspaper/magazine from them you need to do a wireless sync for them to download. Depending if you leave your wifi on or off this is a 2 or 3 tap on the screen process. It will not automatically download without you doing that (the old wifi did have that option, but you had to leave your wifi on at the expense of battery life).
