New Kobo e-reader now available in Australia and NZ

By

Toronto company Kobo has released the latest iteration of its e-reader, the Kobo Aura H2O Edition 2, in Australia and New Zealand.

The new model claims to allow easy reading in direct sunlight due to its anti-glare E Ink display, which is said to approximate the print-on-paper experience.

The device also has something known as ComfortLight PRO that reduces the blue-light spectrum to avoid preventing people from sleeping well at night.

The new reader can store up to 6000 eBooks.

It can be used while having a bath as it is waterproofed with HZO Protection. This coating technology is applied to the device’s interior and allows it to be fully submerged without the need for port covers.

Michael Tamblyn, chief executive of Rakuten Kobo, said: “We know our most passionate readers are invariably looking for ways to expand their reading lives, and the new Kobo Aura H2O enables them to read anywhere and everywhere they go — to make the most out of every day. 

"This device makes it possible to take your entire library with you, without having to choose which beloved story to take along; take them all and make the most of that much-needed ‘me’ time to enjoy your next great read.”

The new reader is available at JB HiFi, Myer and Angus & Robertson Bookworld (online) for A$239.95. In New Zealand, it will sell for NZ$309.
