Kobo has continued to release an onslaught of firmware updates to address issues with their first Touch e-Reader. The company has recently issued another upgrade that adds German dictionaries to the device and a slew of other small enhancements.
Kobo recently opened their ebookstore in Germany and will be selling its e-reader devices locally in that market. To kick things off they are adding more international functionality on their device. This will allow Germans to now be able to access a custom dictionary to look up words.
Another great new function is being able to make notes within a book while you read. Once they are made you can browse and edit your notes in the Annotations list.
Finally, you can customize how you tap on the screen to turn pages (including left-handed). Highlighting books has undergone a speed boost to make life easier.
