Kobo eReader

I bought a eReader named Kobo. There are many different eReaders, and I compared some of them. Sony, Kobo, and Kindle. I chose Kobo because:

  • It is cheaper.
  • It is Canadian brand and has Canadian online book shop which means I can pay by CAD.
  • It comes with 100 free classic books pre-installed.
  • It gives six another eBooks with the signing up on their web site.

So far so satisfied. The battery goes quite long. Unlike LCD, eyes are very comfortable and easy to read in the sun.

I also bought my first book: How to the Bible for All its Worth by Gordon D. Fee and Douglas Stuart.

Kobo 전자책 리더를 샀다. 전자 리더가 여러 종류가 있어서 그 중 몇 가지를 비교했다. 소니, 코보, 그리고 킨들. 그 중에 코보를 선택했는데, 그 이유는

  • 먼저 값이 싸다.
  • 그리고 캐나다 브랜드며 캐나다 책 쇼핑몰을 운영해서 캐나다 달러로 결재할 수 있다.
  • 고전 명작 100권이 기본 설치되어 온다.
  • 웹 사이트 등록하면 전자책 6권을 공짜로 또 준다.

지금까지는 꽤 만족한다. 배터리도 오래 가고, 액정 화면과 달리 눈이 편안하고, 햇빛 아래에서도 읽기가 아주 편하다.



  1. 한글도 되나요

  2. 기본적으로 한글이 안되지만 (최신판도) epub를 만들때 한글 글꼴을 임베딩 하면 나옵니다.

    • I now have newer version of Kobo, Kobo Touch and it displays Korean very well with just putting Korean font into the device (copy and paste on explorer).
