One other Signal Kobo is Releasing a Colour eReader Quickly

Kobo Too Grey

It seems to be like Kobo is on the brink of launch their first ereader with a shade E Ink display screen quickly, more than likely the Kobo Libra Colour. My guess is that they’ll announce it early subsequent week and begin delivery it later this month.

Kobo appears to be hinting at an impending launch on their social media platforms. Earlier this week Kobo greyed out all their logos and icons on their social media pages, and added a line that claims, “Feeling too gray currently”.

Some individuals are nonetheless in denial, however between Kobo’s greyed out social media pages and the leaked product pages for a Kobo Libra Colour and a Kobo Clara Colour that turned up final month on an obscure web site that sells Kobo ereaders, the writing is on the wall, so to talk.

The query is, will they launch only one mannequin now or a number of shade fashions on the identical time?

Up to now we don’t have any particular particulars about Kobo’s shade ereaders, however going off the names we are able to assume the Kobo Libra Colour could have a 7-inch display screen and the Kobo Clara could have a 6-inch display screen. It’s additionally a protected guess to say they are going to help 300 ppi for black and white content material and 150 ppi for shade content material, as that’s the present commonplace for E Ink’s newest technology Kaleido 3 screens.

It’ll be fascinating to see what Kobo decides to cost for his or her shade ereaders. Presently, Bigme sells a tool with a 7-inch shade display screen with the same design because the Kobo Libra, the Bigme B751C, and it sells for $299. Kobo will most likely undercut that by quantity since Android-powered ereaders are all the time dearer. I guess they’ll promote the Kobo Libra Colour for $249 or much less.

Most individuals nonetheless appear to be skeptical about shade E Ink since studying common textual content doesn’t profit from shade, however I feel shade E Ink is nice sufficient to warrant its personal area of interest market at this level, so long as they preserve making common black and white fashions too for people who don’t care about shade, which I feel they are going to.

What do you assume? Are you enthusiastic about Kobo’s first shade ereader, or are you a skeptic?
