Canadian Retailer Leaks Kobo Vox E-Reader

Kobo is attempting to steal the thunder from Amazon and Barnes & Noble when it comes to 7-inch LCD e-reader domination. News about the Kobo Vox has been around since it was filed in the FCC weeks ago, but details about the device has only been sprouting out just now.

The Kobo Vox was accidentally(?) leaked on Canadian retailer website Future Shop, where its specs were revealed. The listing has since been removed, but you gotta applaud the quick eyes and copy-paste powers of the netizens. The device features a 7-inch LCD with 1,024 x 600 resolution, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, and an expected battery life of up to six hours. A number of Kobo features are integrated such as Pulse, Reading Life, and the ability to sync content with other devices that have Kobo reading app installed on them. The reader supports several e-book file formats, but not images and video. Sorry about that, graphic novel enthusiasts.

But with a name that comes from the Latin word for “voice,” the Kobo Vox may have something else up its sleeve, as Future Shop refers it as the ability to “connect highlighted words to audio.”

The website says the Kobo Vox will cost $250 Canadian, but that may change come actual release.
