any reviews on Kobo Aura H2O

As you all might be knowing that Kobo has recently released its new Aura H2O ebook reader with 1ghz processor, 4gb storage, waterproof feature and 6.8inch HD Screen. So, has anyone actually used it so that and can give some detailed review about this product? As per the technical specifications, it seems that Amazon is matching Kobo. It seems to be very smooth and glossy like its previous version which was too slippery to hold. Anyways, if someone can give more information about this ereader, it would be helpful. Thanks

Re: any reviews on Kobo Aura H2O

This Kobo Aura H2O falls into the category of premium ebook reader with a 6.8inch Carta E-ink screen, touchscreen and frontlight. This is the first ebook reader to use this type of screen and also ship with the IP67 certification. This device also runs on 1ghz CPU with 4gb internal storage, wifi support and a microSD card slot. It also comes with the same features like its predecessor and also has the same bonus apps like a internet browser.

Re: any reviews on Kobo Aura H2O

The Kobo Aura H2O is very similar in form to the Aura HD ebook reader. The retail price of the new device was $180 approximately. You can turn on/off the light by simply running a finger up the far left side of the screen, like from 0% or off at the bottom to 100% at the top. This ereader comes with the new Carta Screen which makes whiter things much white and blacker to blacks compared to the screen on the HD. You will find the micro-SD slot and micro-USB connector on the bottom and to support the waterproof seal, there is a hatch cover that goes over them.

Re: any reviews on Kobo Aura H2O

The Kobo Aura H2O case is a little bit smaller and thinner compared to the Aura HD. There seems to be the same texture of the beezel like the Aura HD along with the shape of the back. There are no color models available for the Kobo Aura H2O as it is only available in black at the moment. This unit will come with the firmware 3.7.0 preinstalled. This ebook reader has a Lithium-Ion battery and offers 60 days in standby mode and 30 hours of reading.
