Subscriptions Available on Kobo Ereader

Kobo Will Offer Newspaper and Magazine Subscriptions

The poor Kobo can't seem to catch a break. No matter what new features come to the Borders-supported device, it seems to be a bit behind. The latest release: Kobo will now offer newspaper and magazine subscriptions. This feature, while helpful, is already offered by the Kobo's main competitors. Though the announcement does contain one major win — the subscriptions will be available to users running the Kobo app on mobile devices, something Amazon has just announced and not yet rolled out for Kindle app users.

Find out more, including details on trial periods after the jump.

Available subscriptions include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and more; potential subscribers can sign up for a 14-day trial before committing to a paid subscription. While this is certainly a welcome addition for current Kobo users, major announcements from both Amazon and, most notably, from Barnes & Noble regarding their Android-powered color Nook seem to shine a bit louder and brighter.

The kobo reader is considered one of the best and I couldn't agree more with the first comment. My kobo reader is so lightweight, easy to navigate, not to mention it offers plenty of free e-books. I shopped around for other readers but the Kobo e-reader was the best investment hands down.

@Anon, I believe the author means the Kobo is behind in the sense that more people prefer the Kindle and the Nook to the Kobo. I considered getting the Kobo, but that design is AWFUL... it needs a redesign more than it needs new features.
