Mom always said never to judge a book by its cover, and in this case, not to judge the e-book reader’s performance via its size. After all, haven’t you heard of the saying that it is not the size of the dog that matters, but the fight in the dog instead? The Kobo Mini might depict a rather tiny form factor, but make no mistake about it – it is a big deal! Retailing for $79.99 a pop, the Kobo Mini has been dubbed as the “world’s smallest and lightest full-featured eReader.”

There was no mention about it being the most powerful eReader in its class, but still, for something that measures a mere 5″, you can easily slip all 134 grams of this eReader into your pocket as though it was a phablet, and bring along thousands of your favorite tomes in electronic format around. Sporting an E Ink display that is surely easy on your eyes, the Kobo Mini will carry all the familiar features that Kobo customers have come to know and love, ranging from internal memory that can hold up to 1,000 eBooks thanks to 2GB of internal memory, an unmatched E Ink touch screen display, one month battery life, and customizable font options amongst others. You are able to choose from a trio of colorful SnapBacks (Teal, Ruby Red, and Purple colors) just to get started. [Press Release]
