Have you been waiting to get your hands on Kobo’s latest tablet? The wait for the Kobo Arc is finally over—the 7” Android 4.0 tablet hits shelves across Canada and the United Kingdom today and will be heading to France on Monday.

Google-certified and jam-packed with the best technologies available today, the Kobo Arc gives customers access to more than 600,000 apps in the Google Play store and comes in three storage configurations: 16GB ($199.99), 32GB ($249.99) and 64GB ($299.99). Its 1.5GHz processor makes the Kobo Arc the fasted of any 7” tablet and provides superior browsing and multi-media features including:

  • Front-facing speakers and microphone
  • Durable high-resolution display
  • Access to more than 600,000 apps and pre-loaded with apps like Facebook®, Twitter®, Rdio®, Zinio® and PressReader®
  • Kobo’s unique interface, Tapestries, to easily organize and display content


The Tapestries interface allows users to easily “pin” content in dynamic displays helping to keep much-loved content at the surface of the user experience. The Kobo Arc Discovery Ribbon intelligently recommends both free and paid content – including webpages, articles, eBooks, music and movies – based on the content pinned to a Tapestry. The Kobo Arc is the only tablet that learns what its user likes, and then recommends more content they will love.
