Kobo launches new e-readers for book lovers

Toronto-based company, Kobo, announced a slew of e-readers today.

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.
