kindle vs kobo review canada

The best kindle vs kobo 2011 review canada
A Kindle or Kobo 2011 comparison picture.
Note: this is a new comparison of the 2011 and up models.


 
  • The Kindle is smarter?

A thing that is very useful on my Kindle is that it can easily highlight sections and place a bookmark.  And 
I can search for any word I want which is a good feature to have in a ereader. When Im reading a book like The Game of Thrones and I want to refer back to when and how a character was introduced, I just do it. 

 
When trying to get a book, nothing could be simpler than the Kindle.  As long as you're in cell phone range, you just type in the name of the book, using the keyboard below the screen.  One click buys it and it's almost instantly available to be read.  If you change your mind within 24 hours, you can reverse the purchase.  And if you accidentally delete a book from the Kindle, Amazon still knows you've bought it and you can download it again. 

So far, I've only downloaded books to the Kobo 2011 from the library no charge, a two-step process that starts on the computer.  First you download the book to the Adobe Digital Editions library (which you had to download first).  When you attach your Kobo, the book automatically downloads.  After safely disconnecting, the Kobo takes a while to process the downloaded book.  I was able to stumble in doing this process a couple of times, still not sure how.  You can also download books from a store this way, or download directly to the Kobo if you have WiFi.


As I've mentioned, you can download books from the library - but precious few of the ones I've looked for are held by the Toronto Public Library.  Since Toronto has the largest urban library system  in North America (99 branches compared to New York's 86 for instance) and the busiest urban library in the world, I doubt if a user would fare better at other public libraries.


Nothing is fast on the Kobo compared to the Kindle. And its not noticeable when turning a page, but at other times.  For instance, once you've selected a book to read, instead of Kindle's almost instant display, the Kobo tells you it's loading.


I like the fact that my Kindle always displays how much battery is left; on the Kobo, it's a couple of clicks to find that out.  The Kindle comes with a dual charger (either USB on your computer or in regular plug outlet), whereas the Kobo only comes with USB charger (don't know yet whether I can use the Kindle USB adapter to plug the Kobo into an outlet.


I found out an interesting thing about borrowed library books.  At Toronto Canada Public Library they have a 3-week loan period and they cannot be renewed.  However, it's Adobe Digital Editions that keeps track of the expiry date, so if you don't activate the Kobo on your computer, then you can keep reading for as long as you want.
 
 I have one of each, the Kindle and a Kobo. The Amazon ereader is almost as if Steve Jobs made it himself. But the Kobo acts a little bit as if Bill Gates' ebook reader. I find that my Kobo is not only slower but also requires more careful attention. But its has a little plus, and that is that I can easily download ebooks and articles from the library.

As this article follows, I made a more extensive "vs battle" between the two gadgets so that you may be a little bit more knowledgeable about the subject. Please also make sure that you understand, these are my opinions, and I am just a user and electronic book reader like you.

What size and weight is the kobo 2011 vs a Kindle?

Surprisingly, on the Kobo and on the Kindles, the screen are exactly the same size. However,  the Kindle 
being a bit bigger and not too heavy,but still considering its keyboard weight, it does not win this battle. 
  •  Kobo is lighter.

How does it feel to read books on the Kobo or the kindle?

The screens have a very good contrast and are not  bad for the eyes.   They dont have a  No backlighting like computer screens do. This one is a tie.

Both can remember where you stopped reading and can easily return to like a check point in your book.  But, you are not able to renew a library book (at least not in Canada), and if you try to see it again to finish resume your reading, it won't keep track of where you left off.  I just go to my Table of Contents and start at a specific chapter when I don't forget to do it.


It's cool that the Kindle allows you to turn the page with either a right or a the left side-buttons.  And one of the buttons is very quiet which is awesome when you read in the same bed as your spouse. While the Kobo, having only one noisy button, and making a clicking noise, can be a distraction.


On either my Kindle or my kobo I can easily look up a word.  Its super easy on Kindle: you just highlight the word you want.  On my Kobo on the other hand,  it takes a few steps.  I haven't really tried it so far, cause you can not look up words on books from the library and that is all I have.

Buying a Kindle in Canada: Warning Store Scam

So like many of you back in 2010, i was minding my own business and watching tv, when i first heard on the news that amazon made the kindle. At first i thought it was just a phase or gimmick. But later i saw the potential. An avid Canadian book reader like you, i wouldn't have to keep my spouse awake at night because of the light on, and I could take more then one book with me when traveling or on my breaks at work.

Buying the kindle, my canadian mistakes

So I looked online everywhere, disappointed to see that we will have to wait a while before the kindle comes to canada. Right away i thought: My huge flee market or china town, they probably imported some! WRONG!

I was surprised to see that the kinlde i bought was some type of gadget that could only read text files i would upload through an sd card, not even a usb! so 200$ later, weeks of going back and forth with the manager of the store which we agreed on not to mention (as of 2011) because of their no money back, last sale policies.

I told the manager about how i will write this blog about buying a kindle in canada, and how i will do wrong to his name. So he finally agreed not only to give me my money back but he also revealed to me something that I felt stupid about later on: why dont I buy directly from the maker, from the source... Kindle Canada Store? @#$% ! Well we didnt have it available back then, but now, us precious little happy ebook reading canadians, can enjoy not only the safety of shopping online.

So I really hope you that this warning to heart, Canada, and never get scammed at a non-official STORE or re-seller... Always buy from the source, always buy from the maker: Amazon. And yes, there are plenty of ways to get to it, and this blog is full of it.

(In all honesty, After writing this article, you guys have been super supportive, my family and I were able to stay positive and got encouraged in a very tangible way when the season came when one of us lost a job like many of you, and you know i would never guide you to any other site then the people who actually made the kindle in canada available, but if you dont trust me, find out for yourself, test me, But thank you again)

These are some of the short articles that I recommend before you buy a kindle in canada:

Where to buy Kindle Canada


Buying a kindle in canada from http://where-to-buy-kindle-in-canada.blogspot.ca/ to try and get some time off from work and reading ebooks was a fun wake up call when i first started looking for the kindle. Recently though that price has come down a lot! And I have a laptop filled with pdf files that would be a lot easier to read on a small device like the Kindle instead of me lugging around my laptop all day. Plus the batteries on a Kindle last days as opposed to the hour or so I can get out of my laptop and books for the kindle are about half the price as the same book from a book store.

Dont forget that this is why I buy a kindle in Canada and it doesnt matter that I found a few actual stores that said they sold it I found they were just ordering them from Amazon on my behalf and charging me for the privilege. So the only real place to get one is from the US Amazon site. But what is the actual cost?
If you live in the US you can get one for as low as $139 with free shipping but Canadians don't have the free shipping option. Also Canadians have to pay import taxes.

Fortunetly the Amazon site calculates everything for you and includes the taxes.

Where can you buy kindle in Canada

So if your not sure about where to buy a Kindle in Canada but are wondering about the very real cost... I've done the research for you.

The base model Shown here is $139
Add $12.98 for shipping and handling and another $18.63 for the import taxes and your looking at $170.61 for your total price. That's also in US dollars but when I checked we are currently so close to par that US and Canadian dollars are pretty much the same. The actual conversion is currently better, $170.61 USD = $167.13 Canadian however rates fluctuate daily so If your curious where to buy kindle? at the amazon website, heres a quick link: Amazon Kindle Store

The prices quoted were current as of June 20th 2011 when I posted this.
For the upgraded model which also has 3G shown here the prices in USD are as follows.

$189 plus $12.98 for shipping and handling, then the governments share at $25.33 for the import taxes and your total comes out to $227.31USD which is $222.67 Canadian as of June 20th 2011.

Remember currency rates change daily so the price today may be more or less however they don't change dramatically so you can be sure it'll be close to the prices shown here. Remember a 5% change in rates, which is a huge change and unlikely in the near future only changes the price on $100 by $5.
Want the super duper deluxe model? Well here are your prices for that.

$379 plus $12.98 shipping and handling plus $50.79, ouch, for the Government and your total comes out to $442.77 USD.

In Canadian funds that's currently, as of June 20th 2011, $433.80.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Rates change daily so don't get mad if you do order one and the Canadian price is slightly different. The Canadian prices shown are based on todays exchange rate and unless you happened to find my blog within minutes of me posting this you will likely see a different exchange rate. But this aint really a biggy.

So they are a little more expensive if ordering online which is the only way to Buy a Kindle in Canada. However there is another way around this if you live close to the border or travel to the states regularly. And that is cross border shopping.

You can buy a kindle at Target, Best Buy and Staples in the US and with the current exchange in our favor that means you'll be paying a little less. However you'll still need to cough up the import taxes so your really only saving the twelve bucks for shipping and I'm guessing it'll cost a lot more then twelve bucks to drive down to the states for the day. Not to mention the ridiculous hassle involved with US Customs now that they think everyone's a a bad guy.

in conclusion, Canada,. The real cost of Kindle in Canada is a bit more because of the to taxes and shipping but it's still way less then when they first came out. So I've made up my mind. I'm buying one online and saving the gas money. You must.
