Is the Kobo a Good Alternative?

Kobo ereader

There is nothing like holding a "real" book made of paper in your hands and enjoying a nice leisurely weekend afternoon devouring the printed words. There is the tactile feedback, and there is that distinct smell as well.

Then again, I will be the first one to admit that it is sometimes more convenient to have an ereader. I won't go on and on about the advantages and disadvantages of this "new medium", but let's just say for me, the traditional printed books and ereaders do not have to be mutually exclusive.

That being said, which ereaders are the best to use? I have only used the Nook, the iPad, and the iPhone. Admittedly, the last two are not really dedicated ereaders, hence my question about the kobo ereader.

I have read some pretty good things about this ereader, with it having practically everything that you need - if you really are only focused on the reading part. The big thing is the price: at $99 (less than PHP5000), you have a thousand ebooks at your disposal. What do you think?
