Kobo Glo HD and Kobo Touch 2.0 Covers and Cases Roundup

Kobo Glo HD Custom Cover

This year Kobo has released two new ebook readers, the Kobo Glo HD with its 300 ppi screen and the entry-level Kobo Touch 2.0.

The good thing about both of them is they share the exact same dimensions, so covers and cases are interchangeable between the two different models—that’s something that rarely happens.

If you find a cover that says it fits the Glo HD then you will fit the Touch 2.0 as well, and vice versa.

The Kobo Glo HD has been out for a few months longer than the Kobo Touch 2.0, so there are more options out there that list it specifically but some don’t say anything about fitting the Touch 2.0, and we know they are the same size so that opens up more options.

In fact some covers say they only fit the Glo HD and no other Kobo models; this is obviously not correct when it comes to Touch 2.0.

Just make sure the cover you’re looking to get is for the Glo “HD” specifically and not the regular first edition Kobo Glo (the non-HD model) because they are different sizes. The same goes for the Kobo Touch 2.0; bath are smaller than the original versions.

The overall dimensions for the Glo HD and Touch 2.0 are 115 x 157 x 9.2 mm.

  1. The omoton cases are excellent. They fit the Glo HD perfectly and are super light weight so don’t add too much bulk.
