Tablet maker Kobo has unveiled its new Aura HD eReader as it continues to expand its portfolio of devices in the mid-tier of the market.
The device will be available in the UK from 25 April and will cost £140.
Kobo unveiled the device at an event in London on Monday night, attended by V3, where Kobo chief executive Michael Serbinis said the device is the "highest resolution e-reader" on the market, with its 6.8in e-Ink display boasting a 265dpi display quality.
The Aura is powered by a 1GHz processor that the firm claims makes it 25 percent faster than any other e-reader on the market, such as the Amazon Kindle.
It comes with 4GB of internal storage but can this can be expanded up to 32GB thanks to a microSD card slot and battery life that can last for up to two months, although this is likely to decrease if used intensively.
Internet access is offered via Wi-Fi connectivity and it comes in three colours of ivory, espresso and onyx. The firm claims it now has 13 million customers worldwide as it launches a range of compelling devices.
V3 recently awarded the Kobo Arc its editors' choice award for the first quarter of the year for its nippy performance and unique and useful features, such as the Tapestries feature which offers up content from a raft of different social media channels and websites.
