Convenience

Carry over 1,000 eBooks in your pocket

  • With expandable memory on most Kobo devices, you can carry up to 30,000 more eBooks.
  • Light, compact, and easy to carry — take your entire library wherever you go.
  • Incredible battery life of up to one month on a single charge means you can read as long as you like.

Easy reading

Choose from adjustable fonts and font sizes to customize your reading experience

  • Kobo has the most customization options with 7 font styles and 24 font sizes at your fingertips. Or use Kobo's custom font designed by typography geniuses to leave more ink on the page, making for a crisper and easier read.
  • E Ink screens are optimized for a print-on-paper reading experience by using actual ink particles to create a crisp, print-like text.
    • Kobo Glo uses a high-res XGA screen so text is extraordinarily clear and crisp.
  • Read at night with Kobo Glo's ComfortLight. It's the integrated front-light destined to make lamps and lighting accessories obsolete for reading in low-light situations.
    • The front-light cleverly and evenly diffuses light across the screen to reduce the risk of eyestrain associated with backlit solutions.
  • Want to read in colour? Kobo Arc was made for full-colour magazines, comics, graphic novels, cookbooks, and picture books.
    • Kobo Arc has a high-res, multi-touch display, so the vivid colour display is best for comics, graphic novels, and magazines.
