Love the Kobo ecosystem, but hoping for a tablet that’s a little… higher end than what the Arc line currently offers? Boy have we got some news for you. The company introduced a grand total of three new tablets at today’s event in New York City, and here’s the crown jewel, the 10-inch Arc 10HD. Compared to the offerings we’ve seen from other e-reader makers, this thing really is a beast. It’s also a pretty nice piece of hardware with a solid build. The front of the slate is all screen, plus a glossy, flush bezel that also houses the device’s one webcam, a 1.3-megapixel offering that can also shoot 720p.
On the top of the fairly thin and light device, you’ll find Kobo’s standard red power button. On the right side is a volume rocker and along the left is a headphone jack, micro-HDMI and micro USB ports. On the back are two speaker grills, which didn’t put out enough power to be heard over the event’s music. There’s also some subtle angular design language borrowed from the Aura HD on the sides of the otherwise flat soft touch back.
