Kobo’s Real Touch experience uses Neonode’s new zForce infrared touch technology to make reading on Kobo just like that of reading a real book. With the latest Pearl E Ink technology, reading on the new Kobo eReader is just like reading print on paper - it’s easy on the eyes, even in bright sunlight. The new eReader is powered by the new Freescale i.MX508 processor, a high-performance engine designed to enable fast page turning for electronic paper displays. A reading lover’s dream, the new device boasts storage of up to 30,000 books with expandable memory.
Now with new Infrared Touch Technology, eReading just got easier! You can swipe to turn pages, just like a real book! With our intuitive new Real Touch(TM) interface, you can highlight a phrase, lookup a word, zoom into an image, increase the font size, or quickly navigate through a book as well as your entire library. Finding your next read is also quick and easy with a virtual keyboard.
