Kobo Introduces New E-Reader

On Oct. 23, Rakuten Kobo will roll out a new e-reader, Kobo Forma, which has page-turn buttons, a lightweight design for one-handed reading, and choices for reading in portrait or landscape orientation on the 8" screen. The device is waterproof, and the screen is lit to facilitate reading in the dark. It comes with 8GB of storage and costs $279.99.

According to the press release, “Kobo Forma is the most durable eReader available with the introduction of Mobius® technology, which uses a flexible plastic layer within its display. This allows for an ultra-thin and light-weight device that provides a high degree of durability to withstand the pressures of daily use. Through impact testing, Kobo Forma has been shown to withstand drops of more than 2 meters, as well as more bends, twists, full handbags, and overloaded backpacks than any previous eReader.”

For more information, read the press release.
