Found a great deal on Kobo touch -35£

Ok, so I have been procrastinating and wasting time searching and researching until I found this on a deal site, I called asda and in my local store they do the white ones for 35. Reserved one. What do you think? Should I, or I'll regret? Considering the price, now I could save money and buy a tablet as well, or whatever. Currently retails at 70£ so I say is a good deal.

I got it, didn't opened it yet, lol I studied ereaders so much that I am not enthusiastic to unbox it yet. A thought passed through my mind, tell me if it's a good idea, if I sell it for 60, and then buy a second hand white prs t1 at 75£, would it be a good idea?

It's a lot of messing about. The T1 is nicer than the KT, but not _that_ much nicer. And depends where you are. T1's are not cheap in the UK. and it's used... The KT is an alright device. The only major advantage of the T1 over it is that it is Android and can be rooted. I do think the KT is quite a bit slower than the T1, but so what. You not going to use it to watch videos. At 35 quid, you got the KT at a steal. But sure, sell it if you like. Personally I'd want a Kobo Glow. Though I still prefer Sony. Just.

Thanks, yes indeed, it is a lot of messing around. I too like the glo the t2 and the "dream paperwhite" so now on second thought let this kobo be my first ereader, what we all are interested is the e ink screen, as long as it displays book it's ok. Then android I have on my phone (smartphone), web browser as well, mp3 etc.

So enough with dilemmas, time to read

Sounds like you've made a good decision. The Kobo Touch isn't perfect but it's still pretty good, it's only a year old so it's not like you are buying an old, slow, out-of-date bit of equipment, and for £35 it's an absolute bargain.
