Kobo launches Thin, Water-Resistant Aura One e-reader at $229



If you are in the market for an E-book reader, then the newly launched Kobo Aura One might be the one for you. This is the new E-book reader from the company which is light, thin and water-resistant. This might be an ideal E-book reader for its size. We all know Amazon is doing very good with their Kindle lineup. They recently launched a new one for 5999 INR, which is thinner, lighter and has Bluetooth connectivity.

The new Kobo Aura One has a 7.8-inch display with a 300 ppi. So this is technically the largest screen for an E-book reader. Also with that pixel density, it is also the most pixel dense e-ink display you can buy right now in the market. Apart from that, it is also very thin as it comes with a thickness of 6.9mm and weighs only 230 gms. So these might just be enough reasons to buy this new one over the other existing products of the same category.

The Kobo Aura One has 1 GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. But interestingly, the company also claims that the Aura One meets IPX8 standards. So this means that it can be submerged in 2 meters of water. If you remember, the company also launched the Aura H20 previously. It had an IP67 rating, but the new one takes it to the next level. On the software side also the company is introducing some new features. The one noteworthy features are the ability to change the colour temperature of the screen.

This can be manually tweaked according to the requirements, or you can just set it on auto mode and call it a day. There’s a tiled home screen which displays all the books you are reading, and it also allows for quick access to the store for purchasing some new ones. You can also sync your pocket account, which lets you read the articles on the device.

Kobo has over 5 million titles to choose from in its store, but it is still nowhere near to the Amazon. Apparently, Amazon has more options to choose from, and you won’t end up with an empty search box when you are looking for something. So if you want a reader with a big screen and if you can shed upwards on $230, then this one is for you. So in case if you are planning to pick one up then you can do so starting September 6th. Stay tuned for more info on this.
