What’s the story? A good-looking tablet, the Kobo’s angular finish makes it stand out. Focusing on books and reading, it does away with a rear camera, though there’s still a 1.3MP front-facer for Skyping other members of your book club. Apart from the book-pushing aspects of the UI, the Android experience is all present and correct.
Any good? It was unfailingly perky in operation, with an Nvidia processor keeping things ticking along nicely. The screen is beautifully sharp, rendering deliciously crisp text, so we don’t miss e-ink too much, while the Kobo Collections section and Pocket app integration make it great for catching up on reading from around the internet. It would be a tough choice between this and the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7, but the Kobo does have a higher price and slightly lower spec.
