Vox user manual on Kobo books
I just saw the Kobo Vox User Manual on the kobo ebook site. There doesn't appear to be any surprises, but I just skimmed it. here is a link: http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/Kobo-...1pw/page1.html

I read the section on formats and PDF is NOT listed. Now, there are loads of PDF apps, so it may not be an issue (well, I have no idea what you might do with a PDF with DRM [actually I do, hehehe]).
More format stuff: It looks like the Kobo app works only with Kobo formatted ePUBs (kepubs) and DRM free ePUBS. At least for now. I find myself wondering if what Kobo is calling "fixed Layout ePUB" is a Kobo-purchased PDF (kepub for PDF). I guess we'll find out soon enough.
None of this concerns me all that much, as I tend to read kepub books and (miraculously) drm free ePUBs.

Thanks for the link.
After reading the 'page turning' instructions I'm wondering if the Vox will allow page turning with finger swipes the way it does on my android app. I hold my ereaders in my left hand so it's a tough reach to tap the other side of the screen. ( Yes I can always reach over with my right hand, but I've never had to do that with my previous devices. )
I'm not sure how it works on the KT, is there any way to reverse the tap locations so I can just tap the left side of the page to go forwards not back?

I downloaded the manual a few days ago. I read it, liked it and decided to order one before checking it out in the store me.
