Kobo Mini Review

LAPTOP Magazine
6 May 2013
  • Summary: For those who really can't stand to read on their smartphone, the $79 Kobo Mini might be worth a look.

  • Conclusion: With its 5-inch touch screen, the Kobo Mini caters to an underserved market: Those who want a tiny, dedicated ebook reader. Unfortunately, it also underperforms.

  • Conclusion: The Kobo Mini is a good lightweight pocket-sized ereader that is very simple looking.

  • Pros: Small, light and pocket sized.
  • Cons: Touchscreen not as responsive as we'd like, contrast could be better., Simplistic design, difficult to clean.

Kobo Mini

Pocket Lint
31 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Nicely priced at £59.99, the Kobo Mini is a possible stocking filler for frequent travellers, commuters and anyone who likes to travel light, though in strict hardware terms it's certainly convenience over quality.
  • Pros: Pocket-sized, same experience as on larger Kobo ereaders, screen customisation options
  • Cons: Slightly too big for shirt chest pockets, no document/book emailing, computer required, unstable and liable to crash
