NEW KOBO eREADER TOUCH EDITION - NOW IN GERMAN
The new Kobo eReader Touch Edition was designed in partnership with leading design firm IDEO, with months spent listening to reader feedback to build a truly advanced reader that delivers a ‘true to life’ experience. With the Kobo-signature soft quilted back and travel friendly size, the new Kobo eReader Touch offers the ultimate reading experience. The beautifully designed Touch Edition uses infrared touch technology to make the experience of reading on the Kobo Touch just like that of reading a real book.
Using a simple swipe, tap or slide on the Pearl E Ink display, readers can easily turn pages, highlight phrases for lookup in the Touch Edition’s onboard dictionary, zoom, rotate, jump through chapters of the book and more.
The new eReader was the first to be powered by the new Freescale™
i.MX508 processor, a high performance engine designed to enable fast
page turning for electronic paper displays. A reader’s dream, the
new device boasts storage of up to 30,000 books with expandable
memory, and battery life of up to one month.
A CUSTOMIZABLE READ With the latest Pearl E-Ink™ technology, reading on the new Kobo
eReader is just like reading print on paper – it is glare free and easy on the eyes, even in bright sunlight. Featuring seven fonts, the ability for users to load unlimited fonts (each with 25 size settings), adjustable line spacing and adjustable margins, the Kobo eReader Touch Edition is fully customizable to fit individual reading styles.
