Too Bad Kobo Never Released a Kobo Mini 2

 

When you look at Kobo’s current lineup of ebook readers, it feels like there’s something missing at the lower end of the price scale. They used to offer the Kobo Touch 2.0 for $89, which was very similar to the current $79 Kindle (both have the same low-end 167 ppi E Ink Pearl screen with […]

What Could Amazon Have In Store for a Kindle Paperwhite 4?

 

When you look closely at the current Kindle Paperwhite, it’s starting to lag behind other ebook readers in certain areas.

For instance, the basic $79 Kindle has […]

One of the unique features with the Kobo Aura One is its ability to search for and download library ebooks directly from the Kobo store for free.

Viewing Popular Highlights on Kindles

 

Have you ever noticed the Popular Highlights that are available on Kindle ebooks? Kindles have a lot of features and some of them are easy to overlook. Popular Highlights is one feature that I’ve never paid much attention to. In fact I usually have them turned off so I don’t get distracted by them while […]

New 7.8-inch Pocketbook InkPad 3 Looks Interesting

 

PocketBook is releasing a third-generation version of their Pocketbook InkPad ereader that looks quite nice. The new InkPad 3, also known as the Pocketbook 740, features a 7.8-inch E Ink Carta screen with 300 ppi like the Kobo Aura One. But unlike the Kobo it adds page buttons, a microSD card slot, and it supports […]

Frontlights Still Vary Greatly From One to the Next

 

The current Kindle Paperwhite has been out for over 2.5 years now, and the Paperwhite line originally launched back in 2012 with the first frontlit Kindle. After that long of making them you’d think they would all come out looking the same, but that’s not the case at all. It’s amazing how much frontlights vary […]

Once again Kobo has the 2nd gen Kobo Aura on sale for $99, matching the price of the Kindle Paperwhite that’s also on sale this week. Of course the Kobo Aura doesn’t have ads like the Paperwhite that cost an extra $20 to remove, so it’s even cheaper when considering that factor. The Kobo Aura […]
