Kindle Oasis vs Kobo Glo
The thinnest and lightest Kindle ever. All-new ergonomic design with dedicated buttons to effortlessly turn the page. Longest Kindle battery life. Choose from a black, merlot, or walnut removable cover. High-resolution 300 ppi display with crisp, laser quality text. Reads like real paper without glare, even in direct sunlight. Enhanced built-in adjustable light evenly illuminates the screen for perfect reading anywhere, anytime
Kobo Glo's revolutionary ComfortLight illuminates the screen with a soft, adjustable glow so you can read any eBook any time of day under the perfect light — no lamp required. Because Kobo Glo’s advanced high-res XGA Pearl E Ink screen doesn’t use a glass overlay for its front light technology, there’s never any glare, even in the brightest sunlight.
Latest news about Kindle Oasis and Kobo Glo:
13.04.16. Amazon unveiled new Kindle Oasis. New Amazon’s Kindle Oasis is the smallest and lightest Kindle yet and comes with a handle for gripping. It steps closer to that real book feel with just 3.4 mm at its thinnest point and the new one-sided handle grip is designed to make you feel like you’re holding the spine of a book while reading. There are two buttons on the new device for flipping pages back and forth. It’s odd to include buttons after moving away from keyboards and buttons a few generations ago. But, according to Amazon, people just like buttons. So they are back. The WiFi version of Oasis will retail for $289 and the 3G version will sell for $359.
08.04.15. Kobo unveiled new e-Reader Glo HD to take on Kindle Voyage. Kobo’s new Glo HD e-reader will boast the claim of highest resolution for the lowest price when it hits the market on May 1 for $129.99. The newest piece of hardware from Rakuten-owned Kobo offers 300 ppi pixel density on a 6-inch display, which matches the screen on the $199.99 Kindle Voyage in terms of resolution, and which should mean extremely crisp, pixel-free rendering of text. In fact, both the Kobo Glo HD and the Kindle Voyage use e-ink’s Carta screen tech, which means text rendering similar to what you’d get with a super high resolution e-ink screen like those found in iPhones and modern Android devices, albeit using the low-power e-paper tech that displays in black and white and is better suited to a dedicated text reading device.
