I think a refurbished Kobo Wi-Fi for $70 at Best Buy is still the best value for eReaders.

I still have no regrets buying a refurbished first-gen Kobo for $60 18 months ago.

Anav, the Samsung is cheaper, but the Nexus is a lot better. The major thing it lacks is dual speakers (it only has 1 set) and an Expandable Memory slot. However the process and screen make up for that.

Not to mention the Samsung has the 10 pin "Ipad like" connector while the Nexus is a plain USB Mini. So easier to charge if you are not with the original cord (which has half fallen off the connector on my Tab!)

Since there is no expandable memory, think long and hard before you go "cheap" and get the 16gb one...

Well, I find out tonight if the unit is available apparently a relative has first dibs, which is fair enough, if not available going to pick up the kobo glo, no sales though same price everywhere - 129.
