Looking for the perfect holiday gift? Look no further! Kobo's family of devices offers a host of gift options for everyone in the family this holiday season. Kobo's new tablets, Kobo Arc 10HD and Kobo Arc 7HD are ideal for the tech-savvy teen looking for the ultimate multimedia experience, while younger readers on-the-go, can access thousands of eBooks while on the bus, in the car or just hanging out at the local library with the Kobo Glo.
Kobo Aura and Kobo Aura HD deliver a luxury reading experience with the crispest, clearest screen that’s easy on the eyes with ComfortLight as well as customizable, with personalized recommendations and a Beyond the Book feature that lets you discover more content related to key subjects within the book you are reading.
Not only that, but all Kobo’s devices include access to Reading Life, providing a world of social reading and distinct digital features. With Reading Life and as the official eReading partner of Facebook, it is easier than ever for users to share what they’re reading with friends and join conversations with others reading the same book. Plus, any book bought through Kobo’s eBookstore or uploaded to a user’s library can be read on almost any device through Kobo’s free apps for Mac, PC, iPhone, Blackberry, Android, etc.
I am really loving the Kobo Glo that I have been reading my favorite books on lately! It doesn't disturb others: The comfortable eReading display lets users read with a discrete light that won’t disturb those around them.
You also experience the ultimate readability: Thanks to the Kobo Glo’s 6” high-res XGA Pearl E Ink touchscreen, it feels like reading print on paper, only better!
The Kobo Glo ComfortLight illuminates the screen with an even, soft, adjustable front-light so you can read any eBook any time of day or night — no lamp required! And, with the magic of E Ink, customizable fonts, and a high-res XGA screen, people who love to read will enjoy the ultimate Kobo reading experience.
I was really nervous to switch to an e-reader since I REALLY love physical books and the feel. However, the Kobo Glo is just like reading a book - so clear and bright...but I only need one hand to read it so it is great for reading while nursing the baby, traveling (GoodBYE carrying 10 books on vacation!!), and reading late at night without disturbing my sleeping husband!!
I find myself carrying my Kobo Glo everywhere with me so any time I get downtime, I can start it up and read to my heart's content! Then when I need a break, I just either power it off or put it in sleep mode and it shows the cover of the book on the front of the Kobo just like a real book! Plus, I never need to search for a bookmark again because it always starts me right back to where I was when I turn it back on!!
For a lover of "real" books, I am really a convert to Kobo e-readers now and I would recommend them to all busy moms/women this Holiday season!
Buy It: You can purchase the Kobo Glo for $129.99 from Kobo.com
