Kobo launches new e-readers for book lovers

Kobo launches new e-readers for book lovers

Kobo's vision hasn't change since its founding in 2009. The company's reading apps and eBooks are a proof of that.

But the Rakuten-owned innovator is upping the ante today, by announcing four new e-readers that would go in par with its content. Enter the Kobo Aura 6-inch E Ink eReader, the Kobo Arc 10HD, the Kobo Arc 7HD, and the Kobo Arc 7.

Up first is the Kobo Aura which boasts an impressive high-resolution 6-inch display with touch-screen support and front-lit ComfortLight technology. Users can enjoy over 3,000 eBooks, thanks to its 4GB storage which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD. The e-reader is now up for pre-order at $149.99.

Next is Kobo's powerful Kobo Arc 10HD e-reader that is powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 4 processor clocked at 1.8GHz. There's also a 2GB RAM as well as a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a 10-inch touchscren display. It will retail for $399.99.

If you think 10-inches is too large, Kobo has the Kobo Arc 7HD that is powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 3 chip clocked at 1.7GHz. Users are presented with a 1GB RAM, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a 1920x1200 display resolution.

Kobo also announced the cheaper Kobo Arc 7 which costs $149.99. For the price, you'll get a 7-inch display with a 1024 X 600 resolution, an MTK 8125 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
