AS I haven't fully decided to change to the GLO I am looking forward to a review by a general user

OK, I've decided to post the review as a Work-In-Progress, as there are currently only three out of the seven sections written. I'll also add photos after I've finished the whole thing.

You can find it over here.

Does "Kobo GLO" support mobi format?
From my testing last night, I converted a Mobi book using Calibre to ePub, because I'd read on here, and seen in reviews, and seen the missing Mobi format on the Kobo Glo spec sheet. I then copied the folder manually (not using the right version of Calibre yet to send to the Glo), onto the Glo. The Mobi that was in the folder, showed up in the device, alongside the ePub.

So, for some reason, at least un-encrypted Mobil files seem to work fine on the Glo, which you'd guess to be the case, seeing as the Touch supports them.

I have no idea why Kobo don't state that they support un-encrypted Mobi books, but they do.

I hope this is of help to someone (not supporting Mobi could have been a deal-breaker for me, but I decided, before making this discovery post-purchase, that having ePub support was more important than Mobi, in the Kindle vs Kobo choice. Finding out it supports Mobil after all is just a convenient bonus).

Cheers,

Matt.

This is great news. I never liked conversions. They are prone to give formatting problems.

Can anyone else test and confirm the mobi support on kobo glo?

Does anyone know what type of internal memory the Kobo Glo has ?
The memory where our books are stored.
I mean is it an HDD ? or a Flash type of memory or something else ?

Both the Glo and the Mini use a micro SD card. See this thread.

That's the external memory the SD card that can go up to an optional 32GB, but I was talking about the internal memory. The one that is about 1.2 GB in capacity.

If you go to the thread, you'll see that the internal memory is actually an SD card. Really! There's various discussion threads about people that have successfully swapped out that internal SD card with a larger one. Not for the faint of techie hearts but cool...
