Right here’s an attention-grabbing deal. The Kobo Forma is obtainable refurbished for affordable from a pair completely different locations.
Over on eBay the refurbished Kobo Forma is promoting for $173.94 with free transport. It’s additionally obtainable “renewed” on Amazon for $229 with free transport (renewed is Amazon’s new phrase for refurbished).
The 8GB model of the Kobo Forma usually sells for $279 so having the ability to get one refurbished for over $100 off is a reasonably whole lot.
I’m typically suspicious of eBay listings with vendor refurbished merchandise as a result of that doesn’t actually imply something, however this specific vendor is well-known for promoting every kind of refurbished electronics.
Refurbished merchandise have completely different grades and these are listed as Grade A on eBay, which primarily means it’s in like new situation with no defects.
The Kobo Forma is Kobo’s newest e book reader that was launched final fall.
It has an Eight-inch E Ink display with 300 ppi, and in contrast to most e book readers the Kobo Forma has a versatile plastic-based display that’s lighter and extra sturdiness than typical E Ink screens.
It additionally has a color-adjusting frontlight and a sensor to rotate the display. It’s waterproof as properly, and like different present Kobo fashions it has OverDrive help built-in for public library ebooks.
