ComfortLight illuminates the page, not your face

Read whenever you like, even in the middle of the night. Kobo Glo's revolutionary no-glare ComfortLight technology directs light at the page, not your eyes for a completely comfortable reading experience. Plus, ComfortLight is fully adjustable so you can create your own perfect light. Say goodnight to eyestrain!

Get closer to your eBooks

Because Kobo Glo uses infrared touch technology, it doesn't need extra layers of material like Kindle Paperwhite does. This means that there's less material between you and your eBooks for the clearest display.

1) LED lights illuminate the screen with a soft glow, which the durable, anti-reflectivefront-light guide spreads across the display more evenly than other leading eReaders.*

2) The high-res Pearl E Ink screen has a high contrast ratio for ultra sharp text.

Experience the ultimate readability

Enjoy a more comfortable reading experience thanks to Kobo Glo's 6" high-res XGA PearlE Ink touchscreen. The ultra-thin, durable screen displays each word at its finest thanks toE Ink and a 212 pixels-per-inch resolution. That means that tiny particles of ink are mixed in with every pixel so text pops off the page for the most paper-like 6" E Ink display.* Add to that a high-contrast ratio and you can see why Kobo Glo has an incredibly clear and crisp reading experience. It's just like print on paper, only better.

Experience the ultimate readability

A personal reading experience

A personal reading experience

Make each eBook your own with in-text annotations, dictionary look-ups, bookmarks, and notes. Reading something with a lot of pictures? Zoom in up to 200%, pan around images, or change page orientation all with your fingertips. It's how Kobo Glo lets you get really into your eBooks.

Curate your collection

Sort your eBooks alphabetically, by title, or by author name just as you would a physical bookshelf (sorry, colour coordinating isn't available on the Kobo Glo). Plus, it's super easy to keep track of your favourites with large cover images, multiple views, and custom lists. Now you just have to fill your library with eBooks!

A truly responsive touchscreen

Browse your library, look up words, and switch between screens quickly, easily, and intuitively with Kobo Glo's highly responsive touchscreen. This level of responsiveness is powered by an incredibly fast processor, designed to keep up with every Kobo reader, so no matter your reading pace, each page turns smoothly at the tap or swipe of your finger. Kobo Glo actually beats the already incredible Kobo Touch with a 20% faster processing speed. Plus, Kobo Glo is so lightweight you'll almost forget you're holding a device. Can't say that about a hardcover.

Touch to turn

SimpleTurn makes it easy to flip pages and jump between chapters. Just use your finger. A simple tap or swipe lets you devour your eBooks as quickly as you want. Plus, with a 1 GHz processor, Kobo Glo is 20% faster than the already incredible Kobo Touch and other leading eReaders. Tap right to advance, left to return, or switch to your preferred set up. That's right! You can customize your page turns as easily as you choose your own font or light level. Kobo Glo adjusts to you, not the other way around.

Built-in Dictionary

Built-in Dictionary

Ever come across a word you don't know? Of course you have! It's only natural. Well, you'll be glad to know that Kobo Glo comes fully loaded with the Merriam-Webster Collegiate® Dictionary. And you'll never lose your place when you do look up a word because it all happens right on the page with a tap of your finger.

Instant translator

Whether you're learning a new language or reading in your second, third, or fourth language, you can always look up instant translations of any words you stumble on. Expand your vocabulary as you read. The built-in translator is fluent in English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese, with more language to come.

The perfect travel companion

Imagine carrying 1,000 books with you wherever you go. Pretty terrifying, but not with Kobo Glo. At just 185 grams (6.5 ounces), Kobo Glo is lighter than most paperbacks, and 27 grams (0.5 grams) lighter than Kindle Paperwhite, so you can take up to 1,000 eBooks with you anywhere you go, no problem. Not enough? You can add up to 32 GB with a Micro SD card. That's enough for up to 30,000 eBooks. And since Kobo Glo is small enough to fit in your jacket pocket, at 114 x 157 x 10 mm (4.5 x 6.2 x 0.39 in), it's the front-lit eReader that goes where you go.

A portable library

There's nothing worse than finishing a great read without something to go on to next. Luckily, with Kobo Glo you'll never have that problem! With 2 GB of internal memory and the option to expand up to 32 GB with a Micro SD card, Kobo Glo can store up to 30,000 of your favourite eBooks and documents, so you can keep reading as long as you want.

Read as long as you like

Never worry about your battery dying mid-chapter; a single charge on the Kobo Glo lasts up to a month for continuous reading on the go.**

The perfect travel companion

Superior durability

Take Kobo Glo everywhere you go without worrying about scratches or damage, because Kobo Glo has the most durable 6" E Ink eReader screen. When keys were dropped on the screen from heights of 1, 2, and 3 feet, Kobo Glo was the only eReader to maintain readability with virtually no damage.*
