Hi, I'm a new member with questions
I'm hoping someone can help me make a decision about which ereader to buy. i have an ipad but i find it too big to fit in my purse and too heavy so I am looking at the new Kobo vox and the kindle fire as devices that i can carry with me.
I need help figuring out
1. If the Kobo can access magazines and newspapers when I travel in France,
2. How well does it handle movies. Is there a connection yet with netflix in Canada?
3. When do you think the kindle fire will allow downloads in Canada
4. What would your recommendation be betweem the two?
thanks so much for any and all insight you can offer

I don't own a Kobo and just bought a Fire. But have you browsed the Kobo sub forum? You may find answer to some of your Kobo questions there.

I don't think we'll see native Kindle Fire downloads here in Canada any time soon. It's a _very_ complicated issue, with digital rights and the ever present CRTC.
That being said, there are workarounds, including US proxy/vpn servers but you'll need to load an unsupported app onto your Fire for that to work.
No Kobo here, so no idea what they support in this space, but ask in the Kobo forum.

Are you picking the Lions and giving the points?
