Kobo Arc Review

Mobile Choice UK
15 January 2013
  • Conclusion: As a rival to the Kindle Fire, the Arc will win some support, but if you're looking for an all-rounder, there are other seven-inch tablets further up the list.
  • Pros: Front-facing speakers; headphone jack on right-hand side; gorgeous screen; tapestries feature
  • Cons: Uninspiring design; no SD card support; no HDMI port; some video apps not supported; laggy keyboard
