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!
