The Kobo Libra H20 is an eBook peruser with a 7 inch, lit up E Ink show with movable shading temperature and 300 pixels for each inch.
As the name recommends, it’s wateproof, making it safe to use on the sea shore or in the kitchen or restroom. What’s more, it has physical page turn catches.
At the end of the day, on paper it sounds a great deal like Amazon’s freshest $250 Kindle Oasis — yet with a $170 sticker price, the Kobo Libra H20 costs about $80 less.
First revealed not long ago, the Kobo Libra H20 is presently accessible from Walmart or the Kobo site.
Of course, you don’t gain admittance to the Kindle Store. In any case, Kobo has its very own book shop, and a similar organization (Rakuten) claims both Kobo and Overdrive, the organization that forces eBook loaning for some open libraries.
You additionally don’t get lock screen promotions — Amazon charges clients extra in the event that they need an advertisement free encounter. Kobo doesn’t.
All things considered, while I discover the Kobo Libra H20 entirely appealing on paper, I’ve been utilizing Kindle eReaders since 2011, so moving to another stage appears to be somewhat overwhelming. I’ll presumably simply clutch my maturing Kindle Paperwhite for a couple of more years and see what the market resembles at that point.
