Canadian based Shop e-Readers is currently the word’s largest e-reader store with over 100 different models in their inventory. In the last few months the company has secured contracts with some of the country’s top universities. Today, Shop e-Readers has announced they are offering pre-orders for the Kobo Glo, Kobo Mini, and Kobo Arc.
We were live on the scene in Toronto when we look a strong look at Kobo’s entire new product line. Our YouTube channel gives you comprehensive hands-on coverage done by the people in charge of developing the e-readers.
The Kobo Glo gives you the ability to read in the dark and will realistically give 70 hours of continuous reading with ComfortLight turned on. It is a six inch display with a new high-definition screen that provides 1024 x 768 pixels, which was only matched by the recently discontinued iRiver Story HD. This reader is perfect for people who live in international markets where you are unable to buy the device on a retail level.
The Kobo Mini is a very pocket friendly 5 inch e-reader with a resolution of 800×600 pixels. One of the benefits of this device is the fact that it has a touchscreen and is very responsive to page turns and hitting various menu and settings buttons. It is using an e-Ink display with the Visplex technology. Underneath the hood is a 800 MHZ processor, which should be perfect for daily tasks.
Finally, the Kobo ARC features a seven inch HD display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and 215 PPI. The screen features IPS screen technology, an industry-leading display optimized for 178 degree viewing angles and ultra durable glass, which is resistant to damage, scratches, bumps, and drops. Underneath the hood is a Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 1.5 GHZ dual core processor and 1 GB of RAM. There are two different storage options at 8 GB and 16 GB, depending on your needs.
