Kobo just sent out invites for a press event that will take place in New York City on August 27. The company promises that it will take us “beyond the book” and will show us what’s next from the company. Kobo is a popular eBook reader that competes against Amazon and Barnes & Noble around the globe. It’s possible that we’ll see a new eReader from the company, though the “beyond the book” aspect suggests it could be something entirely different.
The company may introduce a new tablet, possibly an update to the Kobo Arc. The invite’s use of vibrant colors suggest that it has to do more with a tablet than a black and white eReader. Such a device would surely need to compete with whatever Amazon has coming down the pipeline.
TechnoBuffalo will be attending the event and reporting all of the news live. Stay tuned!
