Are you fond of reading books, but haven’t tried an e-reader yet? One of the possible reasons could be the cost. Moreover, when you just want to read so why the heck you should spend extra bucks for features! Now, there is Kobo e-Reader that provides you with an amazing reading experience sans all the other features and that too at an affordable price. Read on to know more about this device.

Look and Feel

Kobo GLo HD

The screen is a 6 inch e-Ink, 8 level grayscale display, which is sunlight friendly, and it has in-built light to help you read in the dark.

To keep it to bare-bones, Kobo has just provided with an SD card slot (which is missing in Kindle) and a mini-USB port for transfer of books.

The e-Reader feels quite solid and compact in hands. Although it is a millimeter thicker than Kindle 2, but is lightest amongst all present e-Readers.

The enhanced aesthetics of the gadget leaves you impressed with the “quilted” texture at the back which feels natural to your fingers and gives a better grip.


With Kobo e-Reader you get 4GB of internal storage, and it accepts SD cards upto 64GB (depending on the model).

You get a battery life of 2 days on a single charge which is much better than Nook.

Turning pages proves frustratingly sluggish on Kobo’s gadget. On the other hand, navigation is pretty easy on this e-Reader in the wake of the fact that the UI is extremely user-friendly.

Once you install the app on your device, you can access 100 pre-stored books and it provides you with a better shopping process.

Only Reads

Kobo’s product has a touchscreen, no keyboard, calculator, headphone jack, multimedia player. It only reads (read that in bold letters). This is the major reason that it has a long battery life, and it is easier to handle without fearing accidental touch or press of the screen or any button.

It supports ePub, PDF and Adobe DRM files only, as it basically reads.
