Borders Adds Kobo WiFi

share on:

Borders will start carrying late in October a new Kobo WiFi eReader, marking Kobo’s move into the wireless eReader space.

The Kobo Wireless eReader at 139.99 is just 99 cents more than the Kindle WiFi sold on Amazon. And it will sell for only about $10 more than the original non-connected Kobo at $129.

It uses a 6-inch E Ink screen and lets users browse and download wirelessly more than 1.5 million books in the Borders eBookstore. It has an SD card slot to view documents, which may also be added via Adobe Digital Editions or drag and drop.

The new Kobo claims faster page turns than the original Kobo eReader. It weighs less than 8 ounces, has 1GB of storage and a 2 week battery life.

With the new eReader, Borders extends its selection to 7 eReaders.
