Read in the ideal light
ComfortLight is a breakthrough front-light that's perfect for reading in any lighting condition. The revolutionary ComfortLight is incredibly even and adjustable for a beautifully lit nighttime reading experience. And because ComfortLight illuminates the page, rather than emitting light outward toward your eyes, you'll enjoy a truly comfortable read. Curl up in bed, on the plane, or in your favourite chair without overhead lights. That's the pleasure of reading on the most evenly front-lit eReader on the market.
Designed for readers
When it came to crafting the perfect device for avid readers like yourself, Kobo designers took their inspiration from the same place as you: books. Kobo Aura HD was designed to fit perfectly in your hand, just as a hardcover does, for a truly immersive reading experience. And with a 1 GHz processor, page turns are seamless – just like flipping paper pages. It's the complete print experience, enhanced by the technological advances only possible in a Kobo eReader.
Personalize your fonts
Customizing your reading experience is simple. TypeGenius allows you to select your preferred font from a choice of 10 styles and 24 sizes, including Kobo Nickel. Kobo Nickel is our exclusive font, designed to leave more ink on the page for a more comfortable read. You can also adjust the sharpness and weight of each font – a feature exclusive to TypeGenius – and set your margins to create your perfect page.
A mobile library
Kobo Aura HD goes where you go, making it possible to pack up to 3,000 eBooks in your carry on and enjoy up to two months of uninterrupted reading on a single charge.* With 4 GB of built-in memory, the option to expand with up to a 32 GB Micro SD card, and a long-lasting battery, Kobo Aura HD was designed for mobile reading.
