Kobo’s Vox eReader Gets Full Access To Google Play

TechCrunch reports that Kobo's Vox eReader has gotten full access to Google Play, which makes all 500,000 Android Marketplace apps available to the Vox. Google had previously only given access to its Marketplace to one Android 2.X tablet, the original Samsung Galaxy Tab. It appears (although the article doesn't say) that Kobo has received Android certification for the Vox from Google. Google may have loosened its requirements for Kobo in response to the success of the Kindle Fire, which has helped to create a viable competitive Android app marketplace, and Barnes & Noble's deal with Microsoft, which will almost certainly lead to a Windows RT-based Nook tablet.
