Kobo has a new trick up its sleeve for the latest in its line of E Ink e-readers, and it's one we've been awaiting for a long time: built-in lighting.
It's the first e-reader in Australia to have the feature, although Sony has been selling cases with built-in reading lights for its e-readers and external clip-on lights can be found in gadgets stores all over the web. The inclusion of a light here, however, means that no additional cash outlay is required. However, the device itself isn't quite up to the standard we've grown to expect from Kobo, mainly due to some buggy software.
That's not to say that the e-reader is bad, just that you might want to think carefully about your options.
