iTWire UPDATE - it's FREE!


New firmware for the Kobo Arc tablet delivers Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

According to Kobo officials, the Jelly Bean update for the Kobo Arc tablet provides a number of advantages, including faster performance.

Other changes include:

• Google Now - delivers information according to the location, time of day, history and calendar events.

• Face unlock - improved to cater for different conditions and to require a blink to prove it's not a photo in front of the camera.

• Improved voice search

• New keyboard provides predictive typing and 'glide' operation (instead of tapping at the keys)

• Improved notifications - act directly on notifications; display more or less detail.

"Kobo Arc is the perfect tablet for people that love consuming books, movies, and surfing the web," said Kobo's EVP of devices, Wayne White.

"With the latest Jelly Bean update, Kobo Arc becomes the perfect eReading companion that offers more with intelligent search recommendations, voice-to-text, and a highly responsive touch screen."
