internet access

Has anyone any experience with accessing the internet (Google, Wikipedia, etc.) with kobo. I need to know if access is simple; responsive, etc. Before I buy one. Thank you.

Internet works surprisingly well given the inherent limitations of e-ink screen and limited processor capacity. Having said that, you don't want an e-ink reader if you are looking do any serious amount of internet browsing. Screen refresh alone slows the process down significantly. I use it to check weather or simple things like that, but for serious browsing it's not up to it IMHO (not that I've had any interest in using it for that though). Also, you only have 1 window to play with (can't open more than one at a time) and no flash etc.
