Welcome to another Good e-Reader Video Comparison! Today we take a look at the Apple iPad Mini and the brand new Kobo Arc 7. Many people purchase one of these devices to read digital magazines, newspapers, comic books and books. You can get a sense on some of the exclusive features some of the apps bring to the table.
The iPad Mini features a 7.9 inch 1,024 x 768 IPS LCD touchscreen display with 163 ppi. It has a duel core processor and 1 GB of RAM to keep apps and games flying properly.
The Kobo Arc HD features a seven inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. Underneath the hood is an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor that is running a very solid 1.7 GHZ. There is also 1 GB of RAM and 16/32 GB variants for storage space. There is no expandable storage with this model, so make sure you buy the one that suits your needs.
In this video we put the exact same video, eBook, magazine, newspaper and comic books side by side. If you are thinking of purchasing or upgrading to either of these devices, this is a review for you.
