Similar display to 2nd gen Kindle, but smaller

G. Matot "GMS", Amazon

  • Summary: I gotta admit I'm a gadget freak. I love technology. I got this ereader as a specific use device, mostly as an ereader to go in my briefcase to work. I have kindles but those are for at home. I've had about every model of Kindle there is. This Kobo Mini is a tiny ereader, I am forced to compare it to the Nook Simple Touch and Kindle. The display on the Mini is very close in quality and appearance to the 2nd gen white Kindle with 5-way button.

You Can't Buy books on Amazon for this item

D.H "tudbury", Amazon

  • Summary: Don't get me wrong this is a excellent ereader, it's very small so even with a full cover it fits in a pocket, nice and simple to use, but the downside is customer services is useless, you CANNOT download books from amazon which are always cheaper sometimes upto half price, Ive brought 4 books from Kobo and now the series is only on sale through amazon and they are ebooks only.

Nice text sertings; frustrating set up experience

  • Summary: There are several problems with the Kobo Mini eReader. It has a touch screen. This is harder for me to use with one hand than the page turn buttons that the Kindle has. The Kobo does allow you to set the zones of the touch screen used to turn pages so it can be used by left and right handers easily. The touch screen is responsive when you're turning pages. But accessing settings or using the dictionary is a bit less responsive and sometimes needs a few extra pokes.

not the colour i ordered.

  • Summary: i ordered this in the white, it arrived 2 days later which was fantastic so for the delivery i would give it 5 stars. the actual kobo is brilliant, i have the kobo glo and purchased this as a christmas present for someone, so for the mini i would also rate this 5 stars. HOWEVER, i ordered this product in white, and was not at all happy that it turned up in black, especially as the black is slightly more expensive so i dont know if i have been charged extra for something...

Compact

Weezer, Walmart

  • Excerpt: It serves the purpose for a minimal price. It's small and makes it easy to carry a number of books without the bulk. If you turn off the wi-fi the battery lasts much longer. It's a little slow with commands or touch. I would recommend it but mention all these draw backs. Being less tech-y, I find it easy to run.

KOBO MINI - L'EBOOK READER TASCABILE

Lindalaura1, Ciao
29 July 2014
  • Summary: ECCO IL KOBO MINI, L'EBOOK READER DA BORSETTA. PER LE PICCOLE DIMENSIONI, E' IDEALE DA UTILIZZARE DURANTE I VIAGGI E LE LUNGHE ATTESE, IN QUANTO PUO' ESSERE COMODAMENTE RIPOSTO DIRETTAMENTE IN BORSA E PERTANTO RISULTA MOLTO PRATICO E POCO INGOMBRANTE. IL DESIGN DEL KOBO MINI E' MOLTO SEMPLICE, NULLA DI PRETENZIOSO. PURTROPPO, LA LUCE DEL DISPLAY NON E' MOLTO FORTE, PERTANTOIL DISPOSITIVO E' PIU' UTILIZZABILE ALLA LUCE DEL GIORNO CHE AL BUIO.
  • Pros: DIMENSIONI PICCOLE
  • Cons: LETTURA DIFFICOLTOSA E UN PO' STANCANTE

Schlechte Buchverwaltung, aber beim lesen TOP!

  • Summary: Es ist nicht möglich das Gerät ohne Konto bei Kobo zu betreiben und eine Anmeldung geht nur, wenn man sich 130mb Software auf den Rechner läd... Auf die Möglichkeit die Ebooks einfach über den USB-Massenspeichermodus auf das Gerät zu laden wird in der Kurzanleitung kein Wort verloren. Die Intention des Anbieters Ebooks aus seinem eigenen Shop zu verkaufen ist an allen Ecken und Enden im Gerät klar ersichtlich und die ganze Software zu 100% darauf ausgelegt.
