You aren't limited to Borders/Kobo with the Kobo Reader. EPub can be purchased from numerous vendors and the Kobo Reader can be used to read them (using ADE or side loading through programs like Calibre to get them on the Kobo).
The Velocity is an Android based device (actually there are several models). Kobo/borders software comes preloaded, but may not be the only choices usable on them. I'm doubting it will have access to Android Market as only the custom Cruz Market is mentioned in the promotional material.
PS: I'm sticking to eInk for my reading pleasure
