We did bring you word about the existence of the Kobo Arc 7 HD and Kobo Arc 10 HD at the end of August, and here we are, nearing the end of October, with word that both tablets have already made their way over to the FCC for approval. That can only mean one thing upon approval, that both devices are well on their way to hit store shelves. Majority of the details on the FCC site do seem to be concerned about regulatory tests that touch on the wireless capabilities of the tablets, although it is also not rare to find other interesting bit of details such as user manuals which are equipped with useful drawings and diagrams that depict just how you would do things such as to turn the tablet off, to enable airplane mode, or adjust other settings. Elementary stuff, really.
Just to refresh our memories, the Kobo Arc 10 HD happens to be a decent performer on paper, with a 10.1” 2560 x 1600 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and up to 9.5 hours of battery life, carrying an expected price tag of $400. As for the Kobo Arc 7 HD tablet, it does seem to be geared more towards the budget oriented bunch, sporting a $199 price tag with a 7” 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and anywhere from 16GB to 32GB of internal memory.
