The Kobo Forma e-reader is the most expensive device that in their modern portfolio. It features a giant eight inch capacitive touchscreen display and has support for Pocket and Overdrive. In Canada, the normal price for the 8GB unit is $349, but Kobo is running a sale where you can now purchase it from their website for $299.99. Chapters Indigo, the largest bookselling chain also has the same discount and they ship not only to Canadian customers, but also to the United States too.
The Forma is my favorite e-reader because it has large font support, system wide dark theme and a great front-light and color temperature system. It has plenty of options for people who are new to Kobo e-readers, but lots of advanced customization features such as sideloading your own fonts and changing the weight of them.
If you are on the fence about purchasing the Kobo Forma, check out our very comprehensive hands on review.
