Kobo to the rescue?

With no news of when (or even if) the Kindle Touch will hit the UK, well done to WH Smiths who have today announced a deal with Kobo to sell the Kobo Touch in the UK almost immediately (today is October 13th – US availability of Kindle Touch is November) and behind it is a massive book store with 2.2m titles (though it doesn’t hold a candle to Amazon.co.uk). I have a serious dilemma now – this could fed my gadget addiction, has a decent screen and uses a non-proprietary¬†format!
