Kobo's new Aura One eReader is bigger and has improved night reading capabilities

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

eReaders haven't been terribly exciting for some time now. The rise of tablets and phablets has fragmented the market and most users are happy reading on the devices that they already carry with them all the time.

Kobo, clearly pushing for differentiation, has released the Aura One eReader with a larger 7.8" E Ink screen, waterproofing, a new ComfortLight PRO feature that reduces blue-light exposure for nightime reading and improved functionality for borrowing eBooks from a public library.

Coming to Canada on August 30 for 249.99, the Kobo Aura One was designed in collaboration with Kobo's customers and aims to be the one eReader that best fits all and it can be submerged under water for one hour.

Review: Tablo by Nuvyyo 

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

For most cord-cutters, getting rid of their expensive cable TV subscription also means getting rid of some perks and useful features.
