Why wait until Amazon announces its lineup?
Amazon has a big reveal event planned for later today, but it was Kobo that decided to strike first with an announcement of its own. While the Kindle will be the focus later today, Kobo announced three readers of its own which will provide competition for the device.
Kobo’s Glo ComfortLight is a 6-inch E Ink reader which features an adjustable front light. The Kobo Glo features a 1GHz Freescale processor and has 2GB of built-in storage, which you can expand up to 32GB thanks to the microSD slot. This device should hit shelves in October and will cost approximately $130.
Finally, Kobo announced “the smallest e-reader on the market” in the shape of the Kobo Mini. The reader has a 5-inch display and weighs just 134 grams. Internally, the device features an 800MHz processor and 2GB of storage. The Mini will come in black or white and will clock in at $80.
