DISCOVERY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Finding new eBooks, movies, and music can be time consuming and confusing. But Tapestries (Kobo Arc’s exclusive new interface) eliminates all of that and makes discovering new content and media a breeze. Because Kobo Arc truly gets to know you – the real you and not just your purchase history – Tapestries can recommend new content that you’ll actually find interesting.
CURATE YOUR COLLECTION
Let’s say you’re going on vacation. Now you can plan your trip with Tapestries and organize your vacation-related content. It’s as simple as creating a Travel Tapestry and pinning pictures, articles, and hotel or flight details so you can review all your planning in one place. Add music, movies, and eBooks to create a complete picture of your dream vacation.
No matter what you’re into, Tapestries lets you create and manage your own personalized experience.
When it comes to vivid viewing, Kobo Arc can’t be beat. With over 1 million pixels on a 7" 1280x800 HD display with 215 ppi, every word and image is crisp and clear. Zoom in on high-res images to see the finer details. Check the ropes on a hot-air balloon or the dew drops on a flower petal for true-to-life imagery. In-Plane-Switching (IPS) ensures all the rich detail of life, including deep contrast and intense colours, look their best, especially at wide viewing angles. Plus, Kobo Arc has also been designed to reduce glare by up to 29%. It’s truly a complete multimedia viewing experience.
Kobo Arc has a blazingly quick 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor, and 1 GB of low-power RAM. When you launch an app, it’ll be up and running right away. Kobo Arc offers lag-free navigation every time and goes beyond responsive for an ultra fast, seamless web and multi-tasking experience. Graphics are smooth and scenery is just as stunning as in real life, thanks to the POWERVR™ SGX544 3D graphics core.
Typical tablets position their speakers on the bottom or back of the device, so sound streams away, Kobo Arc’s built-in front-facing speakers direct sound toward your ears so you catch every last whisper with incredible clarity. Enhance the audio experience with SRS TruMedia™, a feature-rich audio solution tuned specifically for tablet devices, so each sound cuts through the background din in full, rich volume. Surround yourself with sound in an incredible, cinematic headphone experience.
DESIGNED FOR CHATTERBOXES
Kobo Arc’s front-facing 720p HD resolution camera and spectacular front-facing speakers were designed to optimize video chat. Connect with friends and family across the globe with free face-to-face video chats, and capture every detail, every nuanced facial expression, and every word, so every Skype call feels like the real deal. Until we invent teleportation, this is as close to in-person as it gets via the web.
MILLIONS OF eBOOKS ARE JUST A TAP AWAY
Kobo has an enormous eBook selection of over 3 million titles globally, including over 1 million free eBooks. As one of the biggest eBookstores in the world, there’s an eBook for every taste from new releases, bestsellers, award winners, classics, and hidden gems. You’re bound to find your next favourite read!
BETTER THAN A PAPER BOOK
Just like paper books, you can easily highlight and make annotations on your favourite passages within the pages of a Kobo eBook. But eBooks go one step further with in-page dictionary look-ups, direct links to your social network, and the ability to sync your bookmarks to other devices.
You can also choose from 3 font styles and 15 sizes on a 215 ppi HD display to create your ideal reading experience. Plus, choose your page colour (sepia tone, anyone?) or switch to night mode, it’s up to you! Even adjust the screen’s brightness. And if you prefer to read in landscape (portrait can be such a bore), simply turn your device and your eBook’s orientation will change instantly.
READ ACROSS YOUR DEVICES
If you’ve ever forgotten your eReader at home, you’ll appreciate free Kobo eReading apps. Now you can access your entire library, including your bookmarks, from any open device and pick up right where you left off! Read on your Mac or PC computer, or Apple, Android, and BlackBerry smartphones and tablets.
