Kobo enters tablet market

With the release of a cheap new tablet device, Kobo Inc. is bringing its Vox to the populi.

The Toronto-based maker of the electronic book readers is entering the increasingly-crowded market for cheap tablet computers, releasing a touch-screen, colour device that runs on Google Inc.’s Android operating system. The device allows for e-reading of books, magazines and newspapers, and also allows users to watch movies, listen to music and play video games such as Angry Birds, like they do on other tablets. Inc.'s Kindle Fire tablet computer is seen in this undated handout image released to the media on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011.
