KT is a pretty good device..
Last year, I had bought a Kobo Wireless and was not impressed. I decided to return it and was also unhappy with the CS I experienced. I had put forth the opinion that Kobo was not ready to play with the "big boys".
I purchased a Kobo Touch today at Borders..I will have a long commute with my new job and was looking for something small, not too expensive, reliable and with wi-fi. Didn't want to risk my K3 or my Nook Color.Despite my experience last year, I decided to try the KT.
I think Kobo has done it right this time. The ereader works nicely, has an attractive form factor and is reasonably priced. I got mine in black- the only quibble I have is that it picks up fingerprints, but if you use it with a cover, problem solved. I'm also getting a kick out of the Reading Awards- they remind me of Girl Scout badges.
Good job, Kobo. Never thought I'd be saying that!!

I've liked the Kobo since the initial Canadian release -- even though we went through some nasty initial issues with ePub rendering.
The devices definitely work best with the native Kobo books purchased through Kobobooks -- you get dictionary support, Reading Life, multi-device cloud syncing of bookmarks (same book, and bookmark, for instance on the Kobo, a Blackberry and even another wifi Kobo).
Yesterday, over wifi, Kobo Touch released firmware 1.9.4 which improves screen response and appears to have tweaked wifi positively. If you are curious, from the Home screen, select Settings and Device Information to see which version you are running.

(Actually it hasn't arrived yet, but he knows it is coming. Perhaps I need to hide it when it finally gets here)
