Kobo’s $99.99 Nia is its new entry-level e-reader

Kobo is introducing a new entry-amount e-reader to its lineup, the $99.99 Nia, which slots in beneath the $119.99 Clara High definition product (which is sticking all over). When both versions have a 6-inch display, the Nia’s $20 personal savings appear with a bit even worse specs in a few locations in comparison to its a little bit pricier sibling.

Especially, the Nia has a a little bit reduce-resolution display (212 ppi, vs . 300 ppi on the Clara High definition), a common backlight (vs . the Clara HD’s colour temperature-modifying choices), and weighs 8 grams (about a quarter of an ounce) heavier. The Clara High definition also has a painted end, when the Nia does not.

But the comparison to Kobo’s individual products is less crucial than how the Nia matches up in opposition to Amazon’s Kindle lineup. And whilst the $99.99 Nia expenditures $10 much more than Amazon’s $89.99 entry-level Kindle, it does provide a far better bang for your buck. The foundation Kindle continue to has an regretably reduced-resolution screen (at 147 ppi) and delivers just 50 percent the storage of the Nia (which has 8GB of onboard memory, as opposed to 4GB on the 2019 Kindle).

It’s a harder choice compared to Amazon’s most up-to-date Paperwhite product, nevertheless, which matches the Nia on storage, has an even improved 300 ppi display screen, and features IPX8 waterproofing. At $129.99, it’s markedly a lot more expensive than possibly the Nia or the Clara High definition, but it can routinely be discovered on sale for as low as $84.99, which tends to make the selection a bit more durable.

The Kobo Nia will be out there on July 21st, with preorders beginning nowadays.
