Kobo officially shows off its latest e-book reader, the Kobo Vox, which it claims as the “world’s first social e-reader.” By “social,” Kobo is not pointing to the Vox’s integration with Facebook, as most recent e-book readers have. The Kobo Vox comes with a social e-reading platform collectively called “Reading Life,” which enables users to form book clubs, where members read a single title at the same time and discuss about it. Also included in the platform is the Kobo Pulse that lets users find and join discussion of passages and pages as they read a book along. It is also integrated with Facebook Ticker, so expect messages such as “Kristoffer turned a page in Moondogs — 2 seconds ago.” (Yes, I am currently reading that Alexander Yates novel. It’s a good one.)

The Kobo Vox also gathers stats such as reading time by title and overall, number of pages turned, total number of titles downloaded, and even awards received.

As for the specs, in case you missed it, the e-book reader features a 7-inch LCD with 1024 x 600 resolution, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and six hours of battery life.

Pre-orders are now accepted, with a suggested retail price of $200.
