Kobo Vox Android e-Reader: 7" Display, $200 Price

Another new week, and another new Android slate. Kobo's been making a name for themselves lately by getting their e-bookstore onto all sorts of devices, but now they're taking a stab at this whole market with the Vox. It's a 7" Android-based slate / "social e-reader," which has a pretty eye-catching design and an anti-glare coating that's supposedly ideal for outdoor reading. It's part e-reader, part tablet, but we highly doubt it'll have the clout needed to compete with something like the Kindle Fire. That, and the $199.99 price tag here, which isn't too compelling once you look at Amazon's offerings. The Vox will launch internationally today, starting with the US and Canada.
