When using Kobo's devices (and its apps for the iPad and Android tablets), users read with Kobo Pulse, a brightly colored, interactive, multifaceted interface. Externally, a single click with Kobo Pulse will tell Facebook or Twitter what you're reading or post a short passage. But the inside of the book is really dynamic: You can see who else is reading what you are, join in the comment string on a page or start one, view statistics about the book and see everyone's comments within it. A vivid green bookmark drops where you left off reading, and statistics about your own reading habits accrue. There are snazzy awards buttons you earn by finishing more pages, using Kobo's dictionary, highlighting and sharing, and doing something unusual like reading through the night. Although the awards are essentially meaningless, they tempt new users into exploring the service fully. So far, it's the most fully developed social reading interface to come from an e-reader.
