New Kobo Aura ONE Waterproof eReader Designed with the Help of Real Booklovers

Kobo Aura One: The waterproof e-reader that's as big as an iPad (CNET)

The world's first eReader with a blue-light reducing front-lit display – so while stories might keep booklovers up at night, their device won't.

For many, reading is not just a pastime, but an identity. Inspired by that insight, Rakuten Kobo has announced Kobo Aura ONE, which was designed with the help of its best customers and reflects Kobo's latest step towards the perfect reading device. A team of nine of Kobo's top customers challenged the Kobo design team to push the limits on all aspects of hardware and software. Months of collaboration resulted in an eReader with a screen size that fits more words to a page, front-light technology that allows for nighttime reading with no impact on sleep, and an interface offering customized book recommendations to suit each and every reader.

Kobo Aura ONE makes its debut with a singular goal - to offer a reading experience like no other. It will be available in soft black and will retail at and with Indigo in-store and online at from August 30 to September 29 (pre-order from August 30 to September 5; September 6 in-store availability); the device will be available at Best Buy beginning September 30; and as of September 6 in the US, the UK, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Japan, and Turkey; October/November in Australia, New Zealand and Mexico; and March 2017 in Brazil.
