About this deal

IPX8 water resistance is available from both (except on the 10.3-inch models from both brands), as are adjustable illuminated displays for reading in the dark. Most of the higher-end models also allow you to change the hue (or temperature) of the light from cold to warmer yellow for nighttime reading. However, only the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition has a front light with an ambient light sensor that auto-adjusts its brightness. That device is also capable of wireless charging, which Kobo doesn’t offer at all.

The Clara HD was released on 5 June 2018. [51] It has a 6-inch, 300 ppi screen. [52] Kobo Aura One [ edit ]The Kobo Touch 2.0 was released on 8 September 2015, as an entry level e-reader [50] with an E Ink Pearl 6-inch display with a resolution of 800×600 and 167 ppi. The exterior is similar in appearance to the Kobo Glo HD and it has a 1GHz Freescale i.MX6 Solo Lite Processor and 4 GB of internal storage. is the year of the frontlight ereader so it's not surprising to see Kobo release a frontlight-equipped ebook reader of their own. The Kobo Glo uses the same technology as the Kindle Paperwhite and GlowLight Nook Touch with small LED lights built into the frame and a light layer over the screen to distribute the light. My response was directed to rcentos as the no longer "old and grumpy" one's post implied people should send a PM for the image. And I really don't want that. If they go to the thread I can see what I have and haven't replied to easily. It is particularly bad when someone posts a request in several threads and send me a PM. That actually slows down the response as I have to work out what I haven't replied to.

This isn’t a problem unique to this Kobo or Kobos in general, but when I start to miss the Kindle is when I look for a new book to read. Kobo offers a very solid but ultimately not-very-dynamic bookstore.

Kobo's new tablets compete with Google's Nexuses on price, specs". Ars Technica. August 2013 . Retrieved 29 August 2013. Depending on which ereader model you buy from either brand, your home screen setup will appear differently, with the number of tabs at the bottom changing if you have a note-taking ereader. Kobo’s OS is a bit more comprehensive here, with multiple tabs for ebooks, notes and Kobo’s own store. Supported formats: 14 file formats supported natively (EPUB, EPUB3, PDF, MOBI, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, TXT, HTML, RTF, CBZ, CBR)

This won’t matter too much for those who have their own ebook collections, of course, plug the Kobo Glo into a computer using the microUSB port on the bottom edge and you can easily drag and drop files onto the internal memory. EPUB is the main file format intended for use on the Glo, but PDFs, basic image files, HTML docs and TXT files will also work too.

Like other frontlight E Ink ebook readers, the Kobo Glo's lighting isn't perfectly uniform over the entire screen, especially when compared to something like a tablet. But it is the most evenly lit frontlight ebook reader I've seen. It doesn't have the large shadowy areas like the Nook Glow and there's no weird discolorations like with the Kindle Paperwhite. Current ereaders from both Kobo and Kindle go from 8GB through to 64GB (the high-end Kindle Scribe) of onboard storage, with all Kobo models from the LIbra 2 and higher-end offer 32GB as default. We’re not convinced that internal storage is hugely important unless you intend to cram an insane number of audiobooks onto your ereader at the same time, as otherwise, the basic 8GB can store many hundreds of ebooks.
