Kobo Wireless eReader now at Best Buy for $100

Kobo and Best Buy on Thursday partnered to sell the Kobo Wireless eReader in Best Buy stores and on the retailers web sites for the first time. Also, to mark Mother's Day, the device will be on sale for $100 before returning to its regular $130 price tag on May 14. The device was only available through Borders stores before this announcement.

The Onyx reader from Best Buy will ship with 100 free e-books preloaded and has support for Local Library Lending from libraries. The store also has more than one million free, usually public domain titles. The reader supports ePUB, PDF and Adobe DRM formats.

The Kobo centers on an E Ink screen and gives users the ability to choose font sizes and styles. It can hold 1,000 eBooks on 1GB of built-in space and gets an SD expansion slot for more capacity.
