Kobo Vox Now in Stock at WHSmith – £169.99

It looks like Americans won’t be the only one to get in a little holiday shopping this week; the UK bookseller WHSmith is now selling the Kobo Vox.

WHSmith became Kobo’s latest retail partner just over a month ago, but one detail not mentioned at the time was if and when they would be selling Kobo’s 7″ Android tablet, the Vox. As of today, you can find the Vox on the WHSmith website for £169.99 (~$265 USD).

That’s considerably more than the US price, but then again there are taxes included in the UK retail that are added after the fact here in the US.

The Kobo Vox has a 7″ (1024×600) screen, and it’s running Android v2.3 on a 800 Mhz CPU. It comes with a microSD card slot, Wifi, and access to over 15 thousand apps in the GetJar app store as well as the more than 2 million eBooks sold by Kobo.
