Kobo introduces new Kobo Wireless eReader
Kobo, a global eReading service, has announced the new Kobo Wireless eReader, adding WiFi connectivity, upgraded hardware with faster performance, longer battery life, and a sharper eInk screen.

With the new Kobo Wireless eReader, consumers can now shop on the go, anytime, anyplace, directly from their Kobo eReader with one touch of the “Shop” button.

Adding over 200,000 books in six months, the Kobo store now boasts over 2.2 million books including today’s new releases and bestsellers, timeless classics and thousands of free books. Consumers can read on any device – iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android, PC, MAC, Linux, and their library will always be up to date on their eReader.

The addition of WiFi means consumers can now receive wireless deliveries of popular newspapers and magazines directly to their eReader.

Support for open standards like EPUB and PDF means that customers can easily borrow and read the latest eBooks from their local library and also upload documents with an SD card, drag n’ drop or Adobe Digital editions.

The eReader comes pre-loaded with 100 free literary masterpieces including a selection of fiction, memoirs, politics, philosophy and more.

The Kobo Wireless eReader will be available online at, and will be available for purchase at Borders US, Indigo Books & Music and Walmart in Canada. Online pre-orders begin today with the Kobo eReader being shipped to customers in October.
