New Kobo eReader Clears the FCC, Has Bluetooth
Amazon may have put Kindle development on hold for the duration, but Kobo has not.
A new Kobo ereader just showed up on the FCC website this morning. All of the photos have been embargoed, but I was able to confirm the brand, model number, and a few specs.
The Kobo N604 was tested for both Bluetooth and Wifi, but I have not been able to find any mention of peripherals (I was kinda hoping for a stylus).
Edit: Someone pointed out to me where the 32GB storage is mentioned, so we can add that to the spec list.
I know that the usual unreliable source is claiming there’s 32GB of storage and that this is the Forma 2, but given their reputation I am not going to put any weight in what they say. (Remember, they said on at least 5 different occasions that Amazon would launch a new Kindle Voyage.) (Honestly, you could take the inverse of their position, and you’d have a much better chance of being right.)
I will note that the presence of BT suggests this is a premium model, so it could well be a replacement for the Forma.
I’m looking forward to seeing it!
