Why Kobo Isn't Making a Colour Ereader
Kobo won't release an ereader with a colour screen until authors "start writing novels in colour" according to company president Michael Tamblyn. He said colour screens and interactive features would continue "on the tablet and app side", which now accounts for half of Kobo's business.
Tamblyn was speaking ahead of the launch of Kobo's latest ereader, the Kobo Glo HD. He said ereaders needed to have the "best possible screen" as Kobo and Amazon "fight for those most avid and voracious readers".
