When it comes to the world of tablets, most of us would be a whole lot more familiar with the name iPad from Apple, which happens to be the most popular tablet in many markets at the moment. Of course, it is also considered to be one of the more expensive tablets in the market around in comparison to other more affordable alternatives, but it really boils down to your preference as well as mobile operating system of choice. You know, one man’s mean being another man’s poison and all that jazz. Kobo has just announced their Kobo Arc 7HD tablet, which will run on the NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.7GHz quad-core processor, where it will also be accompanied by a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution display which will also support up to 1080p video playback in order to deliver a crisp, seamless viewing experience.
The Kobo Arc 7HD tablet itself will also be accompanied by 1GB RAM, carrying a front-facing 1.3 megapixel HD camera, with a battery that has been rated to last for up to 8 hours, ensuring that you can always catch up on your reading during those long commutes to and from work without worrying about running out of juice. The alternative, of course, would be to settle for an ordinary paperback or hardcover. The Kobo Arc 7HD will arrive in only one color – black, and you can choose from 16GB and 32GB models for $199.99 and $249.99, respectively. [Press Release]
