Is Kobo's Mini too small or too big?

CNET
25 January 2013
  • Summary: The affordable Kobo Mini is a likable touch-screen e-ink e-reader that's too small for some and not quite small enough for others.
  • Cons: Ideally, the device would be even smaller and thinner. Also, Kobo's selection of e-books lags behind Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's. Loading library loaners and third-party e-book purchases requires tethering to a PC.

Kobo Mini review: does the world need a smaller e-reader?

Engadget
6 November 2012
  • Summary: Kobo's got an interesting little product on its hands with the Mini. The hardware isn't especially striking, but it's tough to get too down on a $79 device for looking a bit bland. Plus, Kobo's minimalistic software is well-suited to a device this small. Amazon is still offering a $69 device in the fourth-generation Kindle , but there are sacrifices to be made there, including advertising in the form of Special Offers and, more importantly, a lack of either a touchscreen...
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Notably small and lightweight, Intuitive UI
  • Cons: Limited screen space, No expandable storage, Low-contrast display

Is Kobo's Mini too small or too big?

CNET
29 January 2013
  • Summary: The affordable Kobo Mini is a likable touch-screen e-ink e-reader that's too small for some and not quite small enough for others.
  • Pros: The Kobo Mini is a modestly priced, very compact Wi-Fi-enabled e-ink e-reader with a 5-inch touch screen. It supports EPUB files, it's compatible with any e-book store that uses the Adobe DRM format, and with Wi-Fi off it gets up to a month's worth of battery life from a single charge.
  • Cons: Ideally, the device would be even smaller and thinner. Also, Kobo's selection of e-books lags behind Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's. Loading library loaners and third-party e-book purchases requires tethering to a PC.

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
