Which e-reader?

Amazon Kindle @ £89 or Kobo Touch @ £89?

I've quite a few e-books already in the kindle format from the freebies, but the Kobo looks a better spec as it has a touch screen and MicroSD card slot (there's also a colour one for £149 but I'm not sure that'll be as good for reading), so can Kindle Files be converted easily? I'm not too bothered about having books direct from amazon to e-reader and am quite happy for Amazon to PC Kindle e-reader and convert from there.

Cheers

we have both in my house -I have the Kindle 3G and bought the wife the Kobo Touch for Christmas. So far the Kobo has been very good and the touch screen and expansion options just give it the edge in my book.
