Best reader for Kanji support: Sony or Kobo

I am looking for a reader to practice reading Kanji text. I will buy the reader in Europe, so I need to install the Japanese dictionary and Kanji support after purchase. I am looking into the Sony PRS and the Kobo Touch/Glo models.

I wonder whether I can do this with any of the current models and whether one of those can be recommended for this purpose.

You will need the Japanese firmware to do this. Regardless of your choice.

I was just looking at both of those today, and think the Sony to be easier on my eyes. The kanji was clear and crisp with no ghosting between characters.
