Kobo Arc Tablet eReader (16GB) by Kobo
Kobo Arc Tablet eReader (16GB)

Viru, December 16, 2013

I've had a couple of different e-readers in the past, but I was never quite satisfied with either one. I saw the Kobo at Powell's so I'd decided to give it a try. Am I glad I did! The Kobo Arc is a fully functional tablet, but I primarily use it for reading. I wasn't sure about switching from the fake paper reader to a tablet, but I really like it, as it seems to be much easier on my eyes. I also use the Kobo as an alarm clock; it has some really pleasant sounds (as pleasant as anything can be at 5am). Now for the best part: the Kobo e-book store. If you read in any other language than English, Kobo is your e-book company. For example, I found many great current Hungarian e-books at really good prices, without the hassle of purchasing them on Hungarian sites, downloading to computer, from computer to e-reader. So, if you're looking for a good tablet eReader at a decent price, I'd definitely recommend checking out the KoboArc.
