Review of the Kobo Mini eReader

Good E-Book Readers
1 April 2013
  • Conclusion: It will be interesting to see how the market responds to a strongly marketed five inch reader. For the last four years all of the major players have released six inch or larger e-readers. Other companies have released smaller models, but never saw any traction because of poor retail distribution channels and brand awareness. The Kobo Mini is one of the best bangs for your buck if you are on a budget and still want a fully featured e-reader.
  • Pros: Portable, Easily Download Millions of Books, Touchscreen, Wide Array of eBook Augmentation Options, Swappable Back Cases
  • Cons: No Micro SD, Small Display, Black Model Seems to Show Fingerprints More and Is Hard to Clean, PDF’s Look Small, Sometimes Gets Sluggish When Editing Fonts

Kobo Mini Review

Digitaltrends
18 January 2013
  • Conclusion: The $80 Kobo Mini comes with a budget price tag yet doesn’t come off as cheap. Yes, to get to that price point there are sacrifices in quality — you won’t get the crispest screen or the fastest performance. But this is not a crappy dollar store eReader, it’s a good option for consumers whose primary concern is price or who don’t want to spend too much on something for a child who may not treat it as well as they should.
  • Pros: Light and comfortable, Size is good for small hands, Lots of control over text inside eBooks, Touch-controlled and easy to use, Access to eBook sources beyond Kobo's store
  • Cons: E Ink screen doesn't offer as much contrast as the competition, Could use faster performance

  • Excerpt: Kobo Mini arriva sul mercato degli ereader puntando tutto sulla compattezza delle sue dimensioni, su un peso ridotto (è al momento l’ereader più leggero) e sul prezzo contenuto . Il suo display E Ink infatti, a dispetto dei tradizionali 6 pollici, ne conta appena 5, riprendendo una soluzione di lettura ormai non più praticata da oltre due anni (ovvero dal lancio di Sony PRS-350 ). Ma quali sono i pro e i contro di Kobo Mini? Scopriamolo nella nostra recensione.

Test: Kobo mini (EBook-Reader)

CHIP Online
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Der Kobo mini ist gleich in mehrfacher Hinsicht ein Sparmodell: Er ist der günstigste Reader im Test, unterschreitet das Standardmaß von 6 Zoll um einen Zoll, und verfügt nur über spartanische Ausstattung. Das Display überzeugt im Test aber nicht.
  • Pros: Handlich, Günstig
  • Cons: Schwaches Display, Langsames Umblättern

  • Excerpt: Présent sur tous les segments du marché des liseuses, le dynamique canadien Kobo va même jusqu’à proposer de quoi satisfaire ceux qui voudraient trimballer leurs livres électroniques dans une vulgaire poche de jean, le tout à petit prix. Une alternative crédible aux autres liseuses du marché ?
  • Pros: Poids plume, Tout petit, Bonne résolution, Un système ouvert, Le prix
  • Cons: Défauts d’ergonomie, Pas d’éclairage, Pas de support MicroSD, Le logiciel Kobo

Kobo Mini [Test]

Blogue de Geek
16 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Si vous avez absolument besoin d’un appareil qui se cache dans un poche ou un manteau, le Kobo Mini est l’appareil idéal pour vous. À condition de ne pas lire de comics ou de PDF imagés… On apprécie beaucoup la qualité de construction, mais un processeur de 1GHz n’aurait vraiment pas fait de tort.
  • Pros: Compacte, léger et de bonne qualité, Écran superbe, Autonomie impécable
  • Cons: Performance correcte sans plus, Aucun port microSD
