Kobo Aura One is Back in Stock

Kobo Aura One is Back in Stock e-Reading Hardware Kobo Kobo's newest and largest ereader, the Kobo Aura One, is now back in stock on the Kobo website.

Launched last August, the Aura One features a 7.8" E-ink screen, and costs $230. Its ultra-sharp display has a  resolution of 1404 x 1872, which works out to 300

Its ultra-sharp display has a  resolution of 1404 x 1872, which works out to 300 ppi - the same sharpness as the latest Kindles. And not only is it sharp, the Aura One is the first ereader to feature a blue-light filter.  Its frontlight is lit by 17 LEDs, including 8 RGB LEDs which users can set to only display red and green and not the sleep-disrupting blue light frequencies.

The Aura One has been periodically going in and out of stock since last October. Mike Cane has been following this and keeping me updated on Twitter.

Thanks, Mike, for the tip!

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Did it sell out this quick? It seems to still be out of stock.


  2. I meant to look this morning and didn’t because I want to get one. Grr if they did and sold out!

  3. The Aura One costs $230 and the Kindle Oasis costs $289. Am I the only one who finds this jaw-dropping?

  4. Does this e-reader have a usable web browser?

    I have a Kindle & the browser is primitive, at best – as many of you know.

    Also, will it accept books from Amazon?
