Kobo has released two new e-books at once. For a fairly modest market, where there are not many players left, this is a lot.
Junior model – Libra 2. The device costs $ 180, offering a seven-inch touch screen E Ink Carta 1200 with a resolution of 1264 x 600 pixels. Libra 2 at not the highest price can offer not only screen illumination, but also protection against water (IPx8).
The novelty is based on an unnamed platform with a frequency of 1 GHz, has 32 GB of flash memory, Wi-Fi 4, Bluetooth, USB-C port. Its autonomy is declared at the level of one week. Dimensions are 144.6 x 161.6 x 9 mm at a weight of 215 g.
The Sage is priced at $ 260. It is similar in design, but has a larger screen with a diagonal of 8 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1440 pixels, although the pixel density is still identical (300 per inch). There is the same amount of memory, the same ComfortLight PRO backlight technology and water protection, but a more productive quad-core processor with a frequency of 1.8 GHz and a Wi-Fi 5 module. Dimensions are 160.5 x 181.4 x 7.6 mm in weight 241. In addition, there is support for the Kobo Stylus.
Both books support EPUB, EPUB3, FlePub, PDF, MOBI, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, TXT, HTML, RTF, CBZ and CBR formats.
