Kobo Forma

Rakuten Kobo have delivered their most comfortable eReader yet – the Kobo Forma. It promises to make the reading experience better for ravenous book lovers who read for hours on end, and want a lightweight, portable alternative to heavy print books. With waterproof reliability, the choice of landscape or portrait mode, and the expanded access of book borrowing, it’s a must-have this Christmas!

Discover a radical new look for Kobo eReaders: Features an ergonomic curved design and is lightweight enough to hold for hours.

Push the limits of your reading experience: Try Kobo Forma’s new page-turn buttons to move through your story. Read in portrait or landscape mode, or set the text to change orientation automatically.

Embrace lightweight durability: Kobo Forma immerses you in your reading more than ever before, with a sturdy 8.0” HD Mobius Carta E Ink screen that feels lighter than air.

Dive into a story absolutely anywhere: Kobo Forma is fully waterproof from the inside out with HZO Protection™ and safe for the beach, the pool, or a soak in the tub (Meets requirements of IPX8 rating. Waterproof for up to 60 minutes in up to 2 metres of water).

Enlighten your reading with ComfortLight PRO: Kobo Forma’s adjustable front-light is easy on your eyes. It gradually reduces the blue-light exposure that keeps you alert throughout the day, so you can read before bed, then get right to sleep.

Shift into OverDrive with integrated eBook borrowing: Connect to your local public library right from Kobo Forma with built-in OverDrive (dependent on library participation). Search for the eBooks you want and choose to borrow or buy — it’s that simple.
