Kobo Vox Set To Fight With Amazon Kindle Fire

Here's Kobo's Vox Tablet which is priced at the same $199 price tag as the Kindle Fire, it is set to take the battle head to head with Amazon's first ever Android based tablet. The Kobo Vox is also shipping out this month, so you can grab your hands on it pretty quick. 

The specs are pretty much similar to the Kindle Fire too, sporting a 7 inch form factor, 1024x600 resolution, runs on a skinned Gingerbread build, powered by an 800 Mhz processor with 512 MB of RAM and has 8 GB of storage space an expandable via microSD card up to 32 GB.

The downside to this tablet is that it does not come with Android Market but an alternative market app which features of 15,000 apps as claimed by Kobo officials. This is a real bummer as the price tag is just about right and if they did include the Android Market in it, i'm sure a lot of people are gonna grab this one, but nevertheless, it's still a very cheap offering from Kobo. The tablet ships out on the 28th this month and is available in black, hot pink, ice blue and lime green colours.
