Like print on paper, only better!

Kobo Touch delivers a superb reading experience, whether you're reading the latest eBook or your favourite magazine. That??s because Kobo Touch is fully equipped with a no-glare 6" Pearl E Ink touchscreen for a print-on-paper reading experience. Because E Ink is actually tiny particles of ink that are mixed in with each pixel on the screen, every word appears sharp and crisp just like a paper book. That??s how Kobo Touch puts the focus on reading: no glare, no distractions, just a great reading experience ?? even in bright sunlight.


Touch, tap, read

Browse your library, look up words, change your fonts, and switch between screens quickly and intuitively with Kobo Touch's highly responsive touchscreen. Reading something with lots of pictures? Zoom in up to 200%, pan around images, or change page orientation with a tap or a swipe. Kobo Touch lets you easily create your ideal reading experience with the touch of your fingertip.

Flip pages your way

SimpleTurn makes it easy to flip pages and jump between chapters. A simple tap or swipe lets you devour your eBooks as quickly as you want. Tap right to advance, left to return, or switch to your preferred set up. You can customize your page-turn style as easily as you choose your own font level for a more personal reading experience.


A portable library

There??s nothing worse than finishing a great read without something to go on to next. Luckily, with Kobo Touch, you'll never have that problem! With 2 GB of internal memory* and the option to expand up to 32 GB with a Micro SD card, Kobo Touch can store up to 30,000 of your favourite eBooks and documents, so you can keep reading as long as you want.

*1 GB available to store content (1,000 eBooks).

A battery that lasts

With Kobo Touch, you don??t have to stop reading because your battery died. The Kobo Touch battery lasts up to a month a single charge** so you can keep reading as long as you like.

**Actual results may vary depending on individual use.

Connect and go

Kobo Touch comes fully equipped with built-in Wi Fi so you can connect to your Kobo account anywhere there's a Wi Fi hotspot. Don??t worry about plugging your Kobo Touch into your computer: connect, sync, and even buy eBooks right from your eReader. Easy!
