Why Doesn’t Kobo Offer OverDrive Integration on All Kobo eReaders?

Last September Kobo released the Kobo Aura One. Aside from the 7.8-inch E Ink screen with adjustable frontlight color, the other main new feature was the addition of built-in OverDrive support to download library ebooks for free directly to the reader. Nearly one year later, the Aura One is still the only Kobo ebook reader […]

Time for More eReaders with 7.8-inch E Ink Screens

Everyone has different opinions and needs when it comes to ebook readers. For some people portability is more important than screen size, and for other people a larger screen is more important than being able to fit the device in a pocket or purse.

KOReader on Kobo Aura One Looks Interesting for PDFs (Video)

I came across a video on YouTube that shows an example of KOReader running on the Kobo Aura One. It’s the first video I’ve ever seen that actually shows KOReader, an alternative open-source reading app, on a Kobo ereader.

Kobo Aura One vs Fire HD 8

Kobo Aura One vs Fire HD 8 Reading Comparison (Video)

I’ve been using the Kobo Aura One since it first came out last September, and then when I got the new Fire HD 8 earlier this month I was surprised by how much heavier and thicker it is than the Aura One. Both are essentially 8-inch devices so I guess I wasn’t expecting such a […]

Kobo Comfortlight Pro Review – Adjustable Frontlight Color Tone (Video)

Last September when Kobo released the Kobo Aura One it was the first ebook reader to come with a 7.8-inch 300 ppi E Ink screen, and it was also the first ereader to offer a frontlight with adjustable light temperature.
