The Kobo Glo HD and Kobo Aura H2O are two e-readers that are very modern. They are the latest devices issued by Kobo and have some fairly compelling features. The H2O is waterproof and features a 6.8 inch screen, whereas the Glo HD is out at the end of the month and has the highest resolution and PPI out of any Kobo e-reader to date. Today, we compare these two models and show you what its like to read in the dark.
Most modern e-readers have technology that allow you to read in the dark, without the need of an external book light. There are 5 small LED lights on the bottom of the bezel and project light upwards. This makes it easier to read than a tablet or smartphone.
Today, we take a look to see if Kobo has made any improvements from the H2O to the Glo HD. If you are in the market for either of these two e-readers you don’t want to miss this video.
