Kubo's waterproof Aura H20 eReader gets an upgrade
Kubo has announced an upgraded model of its popular waterproof Aura H20 eReader, which was launched back in 2014, with an improved screen and more storage.
Like the original model the new Kubo Aura 20 sports 6.8-inch (1430 x 1080 pixels) Carta E-inch touch display but gets an anti-glare screen, that will make it easier for readers to read in direct sunlight. It also has ComfortLight Pro, which reduces blue-light exposure from the screen throughout the day, so you can read even longer without it affecting sleep.
The device comes with 8GB of storage, and can store up to 6,000 eBooks, but ditches the microSD card slot. The processor inside ensures that page turns are quick and seamless. It supports WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and a microUSB port and promises a week of battery life.
It is waterproof thanks to IPX8 rating, which means it can be safely submerged in up to two meters of water for as long as 60 minutes.
The eReader comes with a feature called TypeGenius, that gives readers the option to choose what suits them best, such as weight and sharpness setting, as well as the ability to choose from 50 font sizes and 11 font types. In addition, they can adjust margins, highlight passages, write notes, or look up a word with the built-in dictionary, all by just tapping a finger.
The new Kobo Aura H20 is priced at $199.99 CAD in Canada and $180 in the US and will be available from company website and select retailer starting May 22. It will also be available in the UK, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Japan and Turkey. In June it will be available in Sweden, followed by Australia, New Zealand and Philippines in July, and Mexico and Brazil by end of the year.
