The Kobo Arc 10HD is well-equipped and ideally suited to those who like to read, but is let down by its ergonomics.
Reviews (8/10 Avg. rating)
It's user-friendly and pretty much always gets the job done
Great high-res screen, good value
Kobo's iPad challenger is definite value for money
This is a high-end tablet that is competitively priced. It stylish, powerful and cheaper than the iPad Air.
The addition of a micro-HDMI out port is a welcome bit of extra connectivity that marks the Kobo Arc 10HD out from other high-end tablets.
