Kobo Aura H2O eReader - Black
Kobo Aura H2O is the first premium eReader to have a waterproof and dustproof design that allows you to take it worry-free from the beach, to the bath, to your bed. Plus, with up to 2 months of battery life, you have the freedom to keep reading, wherever you go. So if you drop it in the bath or accidentally spill a drink on it, your Kobo Aura H2O will still work like new. Just use the included drying cloth to dry the screen, so you can get back to reading.
• Kobo Aura H2O has an extra-large, no-glare 6.8” Carta E Ink touchscreen that reads like print on paper – even in direct sunlight. With ClarityScreen+, you will get a high definition reading experience, with crisp, clear text for easy reading. Plus, with its fully adjustable ComfortLight directing light at the page and not your eyes, eyestrain is minimized day or night.
• Your Kobo Aura H2O will give you easy access to Kobo’s eBookstore, with over 4 million eBooks, comics and kids’ titles.
