Pushing the limits of your reading experience is what the new Kobo Forma is all about. With an 8.0 inch Carta E Ink screen and ergonomic curved design, this is an eReader made for long periods of page-turning. There are physical buttons for that now, letting you choose between pushing the new buttons or touching the screen to turn the page. How you read with Kobo Forma is totally up to you.

ComfortLight PRO gives you just the right amount of light every time you need it, and IPX8-rated waterproof protection means you can soak up a story anywhere, even beneath the surface. With long battery life and access to articles through Pocket, or eBooks from your local library through built-in OverDrive, the feature-packed Kobo Forma is true to form.


Whether you’re right-handed or a lefty, Kobo Forma is comfortable, either way. New page-turn buttons are never far away, letting you flip through pages with simple clicks. Prefer touching the screen instead? No problem, you can do that, too.

Exclusive to Kobo Forma and made with soft PU leather, the versatile Kobo Forma SleepCover allows for both hand-held and hands-free reading. Flip the front cover into a stand, and enjoy reading in either portrait or landscape mode. Kobo Forma automatically wakes up when you open the cover, and goes back to sleep when you close it

Read in portrait or landscape mode and set the text to automatically change orientation based on how you prefer to hold the device. The adjustable ComfortLight PRO is easy on your eyes when reading in the dark, and gradually reduces blue-light exposure throughout the day, so you can read at night without affecting your sleep.

You won’t have to strain when holding Kobo Forma for longer periods, thanks to cutting-edge Mobius display technology. This makes the 8.0 inch Carta E Ink screen feel lighter than air, while still providing the print-quality clarity you expect while reading.


You also get some durability to go with it. Waterproof from the inside-out with HZO ProtectionTM, Kobo Forma can be submerged in 2 metres in clearwater for up to 60 minutes.

That kind of protection lets you take your book to the pool or tub and relax while diving into a captivating story. Kobo Forma can also feel like the perfect way to continue reading in bed before getting right to sleep.

As nice as Kobo Forma looks, it can also still withstand the odd accidental drop slipping through your hands, or scruff from bouncing around in a bag or backpack. You could always give it a little extra protection with a cover to keep it safer and still looking good.
