Stop searching, start discovering
Every time you read, listen, or watch, Kobo Arc learns what you like and delivers more for you to love. Kobo Arc will help find new music, movies, and articles connected to the media you've already pinned to your Tapestries.

Discovery at your fingertips
Finding new eBooks, movies, and music can be time consuming and confusing. But Tapestries (Kobo Arc's exclusive new interface) eliminates all of that and makes discovering new content and media a breeze. Because Kobo Arc truly gets to know you - the real you and not just your purchase history - Tapestries can recommend new content that you'll actually find interesting.

While other companies might be satisfied with relying on general popularity for their recommendations, Kobo pays attention to what you like. Say you've been pinning content about guitars to your Tapestries; we'll find you fantastic eBooks, movies, web articles, and songs that reference guitars and deliver them directly to the Discovery Ribbon on your home screen. Becoming an expert has never been easier!

Introducing Tapestries
Stop digging through your collection. Kobo Arc keeps all of your content on the surface so you never have to search for it; everything's right there on your home screen. Kobo's exclusive interface, Tapestries, allows you to organize your content thematically and pin media you find interesting into customized groups. Tapestries also figures out what you're interested in, based on what you've pinned and collected, and suggests content that appeals to your personal interests.

Curate your collection
Let's say you're going on vacation. Now you can plan your trip with Tapestries and organize your vacation-related content. It's as simple as creating a Travel Tapestry and pinning pictures, articles, and hotel or flight details so you can review all your planning in one place. Add music, movies, and eBooks to create a complete picture of your dream vacation.No matter what you're into, Tapestries lets you create and manage your own personalized experience. Plus, it recommends content so you can keep learning about and enjoying everything you love.

Resolution for real life
When it comes to vivid viewing, Kobo Arc can't be beat. With over 1 million pixels on 7" 1280x800 HD display with 215 ppi, every word and image is crisp and clear. Zoom in on high-res images to see the finer details. Check the ropes on a hot-air balloon or the dew drops on a flower petal for true-to-life imagery. In-Plane-Switching (IPS) ensures all the rich detail of life, including deep contrast and intense colours, look their best, especially at wide viewing angles. Plus, Kobo Arc has also been designed to reduce glare by up to 29%. It's truly a complete multimedia viewing experience.

A million colour rainbow
Most tablets use a standard setup that only displays 262,000 colours. But Kobo Arc takes the full-colour experience of a vibrant display to the next level with over 16 million colours, so you can distinguish between teal and turquoise like a pro. Kobo Arc's colour display truly is superior to most other tablets. And it's a difference that makes every high-res image, every HD video, and every snapshot look their best, at any angle.

Smooth operator
With a blazingly quick 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor, and 1 GB of low-power RAM, Kobo Arc is the fastest dual-core 7" tablet on the market. Unlike Kindle Fire, when you launch an app, it'll be up and running right away. Kobo Arc offers lag-free navigation every time and goes beyond responsive for an ultra fast, seamless web and multi-tasking experience. Graphics are smooth and scenery is just as stunning as in real life, thanks to the POWERVR SGX544 3D graphics core.
