Since we've brought you the Glo ComfortLight e-reader, it would be remiss of us to not cover the Arc tablet as well, so here it is.
Measuring 7 inches in diagonal, it will arrive in stores one month after the e-reader, November as it were.
The price will be determined by the NAND Flash capacity. 8 GB will require $199.99 / 158, while 16GB will need $249.99 / 198 Euro.
Interchangeable “SnapBacks” colored blue and purple will be available for both the black and the white versions.
That said, the rest of the specs are pretty decent, with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, a 1.3 megapixel front camera (with 720p video recording), 1 GB of RAM and a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU.
All the parts are crammed in a 12.4mm-thick frame (0.48 inches) and weigh 364 grams (0.80 pounds).
Of course, Kobo didn't forget about the software side. The “Tapestries” user interface, applied on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, offers Arc
owners quick access to Google Play, the Kobo book store (3 million books right now) and common apps like Zinio, Twitter, Facebook, Skype, etc.
