Kobo, the famous maker of e-reader devices has launched a new batch of tablets, two of them featuring Tegra processors. The newcomers are the Kobo Arc 7, 7HD and 10 HD and they’re accompanied by an Aura e-ink reader that was leaked back in July.
The new tablets are going on sale in October and they’re multipurpose Android devices, packed with Jelly Bean and decent specs. The new Kobo 7 inchers include the Arc 7 and Arc 7HD and the non HD unit comes with a 1024 x 600 pixel display and a MTK 8125 1.2 GHz quad core CPU, as well as 1 GB of RAM. The Arc 7HD packs a 1920 x 1200 pixel display and it’s based on an Nvidia Tegra 3 1.7 GHz quad core CPU, as well as 1 GB of RAM and a 1.3 MP camera.
The Kobo Arc 7HD will come in 16 GB versions priced at $200 or 32 GB ones at $250. The Arc 7 will be priced at just $150 in the 8 GB version. Finally, the Kobo Arc 10HD is pretty much the same as the 7HD, with the only difference being the 10 inch display with an impressive 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. There’s also a Tegra 4 1.8 GHz CPU inside, 2 GB of RAM and a 1.3 MP camera at the front. We’ve also got dual stereo speakers, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a $400 price tag.
