Borders has followed the model set by competitors Amazon and Barnes & Noble, making the software that powers its Kobo e-reader available to Android phone owners.
The Kobo app gives users access to Borders' entire selection of electronic books and presents them in a modified version of the e-reading software that is on the Kobo device.
Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook are both likewise available on a variety of mobile platforms. And like the other two, the Kobo software remembers where you left off if you're in the middle of the book, regardless if you switch between different Kobo-capable devices.
Kobo is also available on the iPhone and iPad. Borders is the most recent entrant to the e-reader market, and is the third of the top three booksellers in the country to create its own such device.
The Kobo Android App is available now from the Android Market. The app itself is free, but of course the e-books cost money.
