Vox and Calibre

Does anyone know where I can download Calibre for the Kobo Vox. There website doesn't even list a download for Android. It was recommended by a friend with a Sony ereader but has us both stumped given that it is suggested that it supports android but no download!

you download Calibre for your PC/Mac (Not direct to the Vox), then add your books to it
After you have done that connect your Vox to the computer and it allows you to send books to the Vox
These books can then be read in the standard Vox Kobo app (need to use the import books option in it)

Many thanks! For us neophytes perhaps a note to this effect would be useful on the Calibre site.

What devices does calibre support?

At the moment calibre has full support for the SONY PRS line, Barnes & Noble Nook line, Cybook Gen 3/Opus, Amazon Kindle line, Entourage Edge, Longshine ShineBook, Ectaco Jetbook, BeBook/BeBook Mini, Irex Illiad/DR1000, Foxit eSlick, PocketBook line, Italica, eClicto, Iriver Story, Airis dBook, Hanvon N515, Binatone Readme, Teclast K3 and clones, SpringDesign Alex, Kobo Reader, various Android phones and the iPhone/iPad. In addition, using the Connect to folder function you can use it with any ebook reader that exports itself as a USB disk.

From: http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq....ce-integration

[edit]: And further down that page there is a whole section entitled "How do I use calibre with my Android phone/tablet?".
