Compatibility question

I'm interested in an e-book that's listed as "Available for Kindle, Nook, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch." Would any of those formats work on the Kobo Touch?
Thanks.

The Nook and iDevice formats should be an epub which should work on the KT. The only question is how they are handling the DRM. If it is the Adbobe standard, downloading the file with Adobe Digital Editions and ensuring that your Kobo is authorized would be needed.

Otherwise, you run into the joy of removing DRM. An whole other bundle of joy and grief.

David

Ok, my dumb question: did you ask the publisher?

No, I just assumed they would have listed Kobo if it was supported.

Sounds like they just picked the most popular devices in terms of public recognition. I'm sure far more people recognize them than Kobo. But, hey give them time. I think they're pecking away at B&N and Amazon pretty well with the Glo and mini.
