Kobo Shows a Range of Colors in New Libra and Clara eReaders

Posted by Carolyn Tusinski on 2024-04-16

Why settle for one function when you can have two? The latest Rakuten Kobo product to hit the market is an eReader and eNote – and has color too!

The Kobo Libra sports a 7” Kaleido 3 display. The color is ideal for highlighting passages and editing, according to Lifewire. Further, there’s a 6” Clara as well.

A new feature is the addition of iFixit which will allow replacement of common components. Personally, I’ve never had an eReader fail in over 10 years. The rear panel is textured – a bonus for butterfingers like me who can be counted on to drop everything.

The Kobo Clara Colour 6 inch is the same as the 7 inch Libra. Both have ComfortLight Pro – warm and cool. Both have integration with DropBox and Google Drive for storage. The stylus will attach magnetically to the bezel.

Pricing is just above the black and white Libra 2 and Clara. Standard ePaper features are included – long battery life, sunlight readable and lightweight. And they are waterproof.

Both have Bluetooth connect – listen to your audio books in addition to reading. Many local libraries will share books with OverDrive and Libby.

Both are priced to sell. Kobo has done a great job with these colour eReaders!
