Today Kobo unveiled a new eBook Reader using the touchscreen technology from Neonode called zForce. zForce uses infrared to detect touch gestures. The new Kobo Touch Edition has a 6-inch E-ink display with 16 greyscales. It runs on a Freescale i.MX508 CPU and stores up to 30,000 books (with 32GB SD Card). Kobo hired IDEO for the product design and the result is an elegant device with a stylish backside.
The new Kobo eReader Touch ships in June and should soon go on pre-order at a price of $129.99.

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.
