Kobo has been making a lot of changes to their website recently. They’ve also got some of their ebook readers on sale right now.
Once again the Kobo Aura is marked down to $99 from $139 both at Kobo.com and Chapters. The Kobo Aura has a high resolution 6-inch E Ink Pearl screen, a frontlight, 4GB of storage space, a microSD card slot, and a flush glass screen with capacitive touch. The device is exceptionally thin (8.1mm) and light at 174 grams.
The Kobo Aura HD normally sells for $169, but right now Kobo has it listed as $149 at Kobo. The Aura HD is a 6.8-inch ebook reader with a 1440 x 1080 resolution screen (265 ppi). It has a frontlight, 4GB of storage space, a microSD card slot, and an infrared touchscreen.
The Kobo Aura H2O is Kobo’s latest ebook reader, and is an upgrade over the Aura HD. It has a 6.8-inch E Ink Carta display, a frontlight, 4GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and it’s waterproof and dustproof.
The Kobo Aura H2O normally sells for $179, but right now it’s on sale via eBay Canada and eBay US for $159. Shipping is free to Canada; to ship to the US it costs like $15, and the price converts to about $139 US, so it’s still a good deal even with shipping added on.
Aside from ereader deals, Kobo has also started a new promotion where you can get 3 ebooks for the price of 2. The deal expires today, however, and only included titles from this list.
