Kobo has announced its new e-reader model, dubbed the Clara HD, which brings more refined features for a lower price.
The Clara HD features a 6-inch 300-ppi E Ink screen with ComfortLightPro, a feature which reduces the blue light exposure at night. The e-reader holds 8GB of storage and supports file formats EPUB, PDF, MOBI, TXT, HTML, CBZ, CBR. It also comes with 11 fonts and 50 font styles to choose from.
Clara HD is Kobo’s answer to Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite. It has a similar illuminated display size, but comes with twice as much storage space. What truly separates the two is that Kindle Paperwhite includes ads on the lock screen (removable for $20) while the Clara HD is ad-free.
The e-reader costs $129.99 and improves on its predecessor, the Aura Edition2, in both display quality and storage space.
You can pre-order today and the reader will be start shipping June 5th.
