Kobo is introducing a new entry-degree e-reader to its lineup, the $99.99 Nia, which slots in beneath the $119.99 Clara High definition product (which is sticking all around). Although equally versions have a 6-inch exhibit, the Nia’s $20 cost savings occur with a little bit worse specs in a couple areas in contrast to its marginally pricier sibling.
Precisely, the Nia has a a little lessen-resolution display (212 ppi, vs . 300 ppi on the Clara Hd), a normal backlight (as opposed to the Clara HD’s colour temperature-transforming selections), and weighs 8 grams (about a quarter of an ounce) heavier. The Clara Hd also has a painted end, though the Nia does not.
But the comparison to Kobo’s individual solutions is fewer critical than how the Nia matches up from Amazon’s Kindle lineup. And when the $99.99 Nia costs $10 more than Amazon’s $89.99 entry-level Kindle, it does supply a far better bang for your buck. The foundation Kindle however has an however reduced-resolution show (at 147 ppi) and provides just fifty percent the storage of the Nia (which has 8GB of onboard memory, vs . 4GB on the 2019 Kindle).
It’s a more durable alternative in contrast to Amazon’s latest Paperwhite product, although, which matches the Nia on storage, has an even improved 300 ppi show, and offers IPX8 waterproofing. At $129.99, it’s markedly much more pricey than both the Nia or the Clara High definition, but it can consistently be uncovered on sale for as very low as $84.99, which tends to make the selection a bit more difficult.
The Kobo Nia will be accessible on July 21st, with preorders starting up these days.
