Read comfortably, day or night
The perfect travel companion

Enjoy a more comfortable reading experience thanks to Kobo Glo’s 6″ high-res XGA Pearl E Ink touchscreen. The ultra-thin, durable screen displays each word at its finest thanks to E Ink and a 212 pixels-per-inch resolution. That means that tiny particles of ink are mixed in with every pixel so text pops off the page for the most paper-like 6″ E Ink display.* Add to that a high-contrast ratio and you can see why Kobo Glo has an incredibly clear and crisp reading experience. It’s just like print on paper, only better.
