Latest news about Kindle Voyage and Kobo Aura:
05.10.17. Kobo makes managing ebooks simpler. Kobo updated firmware for its e-readers. The update added Manage Books feature: under My Books, you can now select several books at once, mark them as finished or unread, remove them, or add them to collections. My Books section got a cleaner layout of information, including the Filter and Sort menus. The reading experience was also improved. Now you can tap the middle of your page to open reading menus, access the Table of Contents, or adjust Reading Settings. Your screen will refresh after every chapter instead of every six pages.
17.08.16. New 7.8-inch Aura One e-reader - the Cadillac of e-readers. With the new Aura One, Kobo is trying to take on Amazon-dominated space. Its 7.8-inch display utterly dwarfs the Aura HD and a $230 price point to match. Even with a handful of other welcome add-on features, that’s a pretty lofty price tag for a devoted e-reader when Amazon’s Kindle Voyage starts at $30 less (the Special Offers edition, at least). But Kobo’s previous attempts to go all in have paid off before, and while the company will likely be the first to admit that the Aura One isn’t for everyone, it gives the sort of person willing to shell out more than $200 for such a device exactly what they’re looking for: the ultimate e-reader. Kobo once again gets some points for thinking outside of the e-reader mainstream, and while the Aura One probably isn’t worth the price of entry for most readers, the devoted few will find a lot to love, including a massive screen, blue-light shifting, a nice design and a whole lot of storage.
18.09.14. Amazon unveils $199 Kindle Voyage and new simple Kindle ereader with touchscreen. Amazon today introduced the 7th generation of Kindle: Kindle Voyage, the premium, most advanced e-reader ever, and the new simple Kindle ereader, with a 20% faster processor, twice the storage, and now with a touch interface. Kindle Voyage costs $199. Should you buy it? Depends on how much you care about page turns. On either side of the reader face are two thin lines. A gentle press anywhere along those lines advances and turns back a page. Amazon even built in a very subtle bit of haptic feedback to let you know the thing is working. You can also advance pages via a swipe on the touch screen. To be fair, it also has a flat glass, high-resolution screen and a brighter, self-adjusting light.
27.08.14. Kobo unveiled waterproof Aura H2O Reader. Kobo has developed a new waterproof device - Kobo Aura H2O which costs $179 and is due out October 1. It's the latest in a series of efforts at offering devices purpose-built for readers at the premium end of the market. The Kobo Aura H2O aims to be a sort of all-terrain, sport-utility ereader, designed for those who want to take their devices places they otherwise wouldn’t, like into the bathtub or to the beach. The device is both thinner and lighter than the Kobo Aura HD, costs $10 more than and boasts an upgraded high-definition display and dustproof, air-tight design that resists water for up to thirty minutes when submerged.
