Reviews of the Upcoming Kobo Color E-Readers

Kobo is releasing two color e-readers—the Kobo Clara Colour and the Kobo Libra Colour—on April 30. A good place to get users’ opinions is the official Kobo Reddit thread, which features discussions about whether to switch to a color model, getting library books on the color models, comparisons with the previous Clara model, switching from the Amazon ecosystem to the Kobo one, and more.

Since Kobo announced the new products, many sites have begun posting reviews. Here are a few.

Matt Keith examines the Kobo Libra Colour for CGMagazine, calling it “a great evolution of the Libra line” and “the best eReader on the market.”

Michael Kozlowski highlights the Libra Colour for Good E-Reader, calling it “excellent.”

For Android Police, Daniel Allen looks at the two color e-readers plus the Kobo Clara BW, noting, “With this triple launch, Kobo could elbow out even more market space from Kindle.”

Sharmishta Sarkar digs into all three products for TechRadar, with an in-depth review of the Libra Colour that exclaims, “This ereader does it all!”

For Lifewire, Charlie Sorrel writes of color e-ink, “It’s not going to reproduce the colors of comics or illustrated books as well as an iPad, but it’s a lot better than a newspaper, and maybe as good as a mid-level magazine.”

Andrew Cunningham summarizes the new products for Ars Technica, sharing that the models’ “improvements both try to address the main problems with color e-readers while retaining the outstanding battery life and easy-on-the-eyes screens that have kept e-readers viable even as phones and tablets have become ubiquitous.”

Sheena Vasani writes about the product launch for The Verge, promising reviews to come. Bookmark her author page to find out when those drop.
