if you will agree with us, reading ebooks off LED backed display is not the most comfortable thing to do in the entire world and so for true ebook lovers, a real eReader is the gadget of choice, but for the even more “passionate, voracious reader”, you have to look to the new Kobo Aura HD eReader. well, at least that’s how Kobo CEO Michael Serbinis puts it. and that’s probably also why the Aura HD will be pushed out as a limited edition eReader (and a sign that it is not meant to dethrone the current flagship Glo). powered by a 1GHz processor, the Kobo Aura HD takes the claim of being the fastest eReader on the market. along with a speedier processor is a large 6.8″ Pearl E Ink display packing in 265 dpi and boasting a cool 1,440 x 1,080 resolution – the firm’s very first HD E-ink display. other highlights include built-in ComfortLight technology for comfy night time reading, built-in WiFi, 4GB of onboard storage – expandable up to 32GB via microSD card slot, a super long battery life (up to 2 months), built-in Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate dictionary, and the incorporation of TypeGenius, a unique Kobo font experience with a choice of 10 font styles, 24 font sizes, plus the ability to adjust font sharpness and weight. the font pack on the limited edition Aura HD also includes Kobo’s exclusive Kobo Nickel font which is designed for crisp and clear readability. the Kobo Aura HD eReader will be available for pre-order in North America from April 16 for $169.99 a pop and will be hitting the shelves in Canada and the UK from April 25 with international availability starting in May. click past the jump for a pretty lengthy product video.
