TORONTO, ON – October 29, 2017 – So much manga to read, so little time—and so much manga to keep with you wherever you go. Rakuten Kobo today announces Kobo Aura ONE Limited Edition, building upon the original Aura ONE by adding 32GB of memory—which means four times more storage space for large ebook files. This is the perfect solution for fans looking to hold their entire digital manga or graphic novel collections. Detailed graphic content looks excellent on the Aura ONE Limited Edition’s high-resolution screen, and is easier to read on the largest screen available in a commercial eReader. Readers can store up to 700 manga titles or up to 28,000 text-based eBooks.
Kobo Aura ONE Limited Edition will be available in soft black and will retail for $279.99 USD (MSRP) in the US exclusively at www.kobo.com. Pre-orders will be available to Kobo Super Points VIP members from November 29 to December 5; Kobo Aura ONE Limited Edition will be available to all US customers beginning December 6. The device will also be available in Japan.
Michael Tamblyn, CEO, Rakuten Kobo, said: "We have many customers who are comics- and manga-enthusiasts, and they have told us they need more space to hold their vast collections, especially in markets like Japan, but really anywhere that manga fans are found. Kobo Aura ONE Limited Edition has the extra memory they need, which then creates more space at home, in your bag, or in your backpack. It’s also great for our most valuable customers who just have thousands and thousands of ebooks and want them all available all the time. It’s just another example of how we design and build new devices with a view to making our customers’ reading lives easier and better.”
