Kobo Aura H2O Review and Video Walkthrough

Kobo Aura H2O

The new waterproof Kobo Aura H2O was released at the beginning of the month. Yesterday I posted a PDF review and a comparison between it and the Kindle Paperwhite.

It’s taken awhile for me to post reviews for the H2O because the new Kindle and Fire HD 6 arrived first, and I had to focus on getting those reviews finished, but now I’ve finally got the Kobo Aura H2O review done too.

The review includes a few pictures, a 15-minute video walkthrough showing the hardware and software features in action, along with a description of all the software-related features. I plan on posting a comparison review between the H2O and the new Kindle Voyage later in the week, so check back soon for more details.

  1. How does Kobo handle library books? I am currently on a Sony platform, and library books are pretty seamlessly integrated into the onboard library. Since the Sony reader store closed, and my book library was ported to Kobo, I’m interested in investing in this new reader. I read a fair number of library books, so this is an important thing to know.

    • Kobo doesn’t make it nearly as easy as Sony did. You have to use the standard download to your computer using ADE method and then transferring to the Kobo via USB.

  2. Does the Kobo platform support the Overdrive app? That’s what my library uses, and if I could load the app on the reader, then it might be more seamless.
