Or you can download the update to your computer and use Sony’s updater utility by following the links below.
I went ahead and installed the update on my PRS-T2 because I was unsure if it would actually link the library on the device with my Kobo library or if it would just add a link to buy ebooks from Kobo. Plus there’s no way to access the Kobo store at this point.
There’s just a screen that basically says the Kobo ebook store is coming soon, and that you should use a computer, tablet, or phone to shop at
They say to sync your ereader to add the new titles to your library.
Well, there is no sync button on a Sony Reader like there is a Kobo ereader, so there appears to be no way to add your Kobo library wirelessly at this point in time—guess they’ve still got some work to do.
