Kobo Aura H20 review


The Kobo Aura H2O offers one of the most authentic reading experiences of any ebook reader and it even has a cool design. The reader's special features are what set it apart from Amazon's offerings.

Even though the ebook reader seems to be fading fast, Kobo and Amazon are still producing high-end devices for that market. If you prefer reading on an ebook reader to reading on a tablet, the Kindle Paperwhite and Aura H2O are really your best...

Kobo Aura H20


In the bathtub, at the beach or next to the pool: Those are just three of my favorite places to read. The 6.8-inch Kobo Aura H20 is the first E Ink e-reader designed to be safe in all three situations. Thanks to its bright front-light, it's also good...

Kobo Aura H20 Review


Water resistant, bathtub friendly; Bigger display makes reading easier; Gamified reading experience

No periodicals; Smudge-prone exterior; Lacks parental controls; Overpriced e-books

Finally! An E Ink e-reader that's ready for a bath, assuming you can afford this device.

Test : Kobo H2O, la liseuse étanche qui plaît par son grand écran


La liseuse H2O coûte un peu cher mais son grand écran de belle qualité convaincra les lecteurs à l'étroit dans le format 6 pouces. Et l'étanchéité reste un avantage appréciable pour les vacanciers.

Si vous recherchez une liseuse grand format avec un écran éclairé et affichant une belle qualité d’affichage, la Kobo H2O est faite pour vous. Il faudra en revanche composer avec ses dimensions plus imposantes et un prix sensiblement plus élevé de 180...

Review Kobo Aura H20: Waterdichte e-reader |


Een e-reader blijft de beste manier om een digitaal boek te lezen, maar Kobo gaat een stap verder door hem ook waterdicht te maken.

Schermkwaliteit ; waterdicht ; autonomie

Prijs ; soms heel traag
