There have been some interesting changes recently with RIM’s “Connection” newsletter. Their latest release of their personal edition included what I would call a review of the Kobo eBook app along with promoting Kobo’s contest where they are giving away 3 Kobo eReaders to users who download the app in the US and Canada.
I have never really seen RIM do this kind of review of an application especially since they don’t do anything like it on their official blog. I guess they have more leeway with their newsletters. I tried the Kobo eBook app back when it was called Shortcovers but I still prefer the Mobipocket eReader app which lets you create your own eBooks and convert documents with ease. The only downside of the Mobipocket app is that it was purchased by Amazon and they have stopped developing it in favor of their Kindle BlackBerry app.
Still it might be worth downloading the Kobo app just to be entered for a chance to win one of 3 Kobo eReaders which are just flying off the shelves (psych). You can read more about the contest at this link or download the app here in App World.
