Kobo’s $99.99 Nia is its new entry-level e-reader

Kobo is introducing a new entry-amount e-reader to its lineup, the $99.99 Nia, which slots in beneath the $119.99 Clara Hd model (which is sticking all around). Whilst both styles have a 6-inch show, the Nia’s $20 price savings come with somewhat even worse specs in a couple spots when compared to its somewhat pricier sibling.

Especially, the Nia has a marginally reduce-resolution screen (212 ppi, as opposed to 300 ppi on the Clara Hd), a conventional backlight (versus the Clara HD’s shade temperature-shifting alternatives), and weighs 8 grams (about a quarter of an ounce) heavier. The Clara Hd also has a painted complete, when the Nia does not.

But the comparison to Kobo’s own products is significantly less significant than how the Nia matches up versus Amazon’s Kindle lineup. And while the $99.99 Nia expenditures $10 much more than Amazon’s $89.99 entry-degree Kindle, it does give a greater bang for your buck. The foundation Kindle nevertheless has an unfortunately lower-resolution exhibit (at 147 ppi) and provides just 50 % the storage of the Nia (which has 8GB of onboard memory, as opposed to 4GB on the 2019 Kindle).

It is a more durable preference when compared to Amazon’s hottest Paperwhite design, even though, which matches the Nia on storage, has an even better 300 ppi show, and provides IPX8 waterproofing. At $129.99, it is markedly extra high-priced than possibly the Nia or the Clara High definition, but it can regularly be observed on sale for as low as $84.99, which tends to make the decision a little bit more challenging.

The Kobo Nia will be readily available on July 21st, with preorders starting up nowadays.
