The new front-lit, Kobo Glo is the next generation in comfortable eReading, thanks to the featured ComfortLight, which illuminates the screen with a soft, adjustable glow. You can read any time of day under the perfect light with no lamp required. The sharp, crisp and clear reading makes this the ultimate reading experience.
- Front lit.
- Choose to have light on or off to conserve battery power.
- Impressive battery life - Never worry about your battery dying mid-chapter; a single charge on the Kobo Glo lasts up to a month for continuous reading on the go.
- Kobo Glo's revolutionary ComfortLight illuminates the screen with a soft, adjustable glow so you can read any eBook any time of day under the perfect light — no lamp required.
- Kobo Glo illuminates the story you're reading, not the room, so you (and only you) can enjoy an incredible reading experience even in the middle of the night.
- Reading has never been more comfortable thanks to Kobo Glo's 6" high-res XGA Pearl E Ink touchscreen. The ultra-thin, durable screen displays each word at its finest thanks to E Ink and a 212 pixels-per-inch resolution. That means that tiny particles of ink are mixed in with every pixel so text pops off the page. Add to that a high-contrast ratio and you can see why Kobo Glo has an incredibly clear and crisp reading experience. It's just like print on paper, only better.
- Make each eBook your own with in-text annotations, dictionary look-ups, bookmarks, and notes. Reading something with a lot of pictures? Zoom in up to 200%, pan around images, or change page orientation all with your fingertips. It's how Kobo Glo lets you get really into your eBooks.
- Responsive touch screen with touch to turn capability.
- Built-in dictionary.
- Instant translator.
- Up to 1,000 eBooks with you anywhere you go, no problem. Not enough? You can add up to 32 GB with a Micro SD card. That's enough for up to 30,000 eBooks. And since Kobo Glo is small enough to fit in your jacket pocket, at 114 x 157 x 10 mm (4.5 x 6.2 x 0.39 in), it's the front-lit eReader that goes where you go.
