The world of e-readers has grown tremendously in recent years, and
there's a reason: people love them, and the Kindle
have led the
charge. But a lot of smaller companies have cropped up as well,
offering cheaper alternatives for those unconcerned with brand name or
certain luxury features. The Kobo
Wireless Reader is one of those units,
and a cheaper alternative to the Kindle just got even cheaper.
The Onyx version of the Kobo Wireless Reader will be available on
Mother's Day for just $99 at Best Buy, and consumers can also get that
price online. Kobo’s VP of business development Todd Humphrey had this
to say: "We’ve seen great success working with Best Buy in Canada and
forward to being available in-store in the U.S. with the Mother’s Day
special. Having Kobo’s Wireless eReader in Best Buy stores throughout
States and online provides the eReading public with more purchasing
options and allows shoppers to compare our eReader to the competition to
see the value and versatility we bring to the table."
So, there you have it -- if you're looking for a last minute Mom's Day gift, you just found it!
