Product Description

Product Features

Read comfortably

Kobo Forma features our first ergonomic curved design. The sturdy 8.0” HD E Ink Carta Mobius screen
feels lighter than air so you can hold it comfortably and read for hours.

Your eReader, fit just for you

Whether you’re right-handed or a lefty, you can use Kobo Forma's page-turn buttons or use the touchscreen to read. Read in portrait or landscape mode, or set the text to automatically change orientation depending how you hold your eReader.

Dropbox Support, exclusive to Kobo Forma

Dropbox Support allows you to add eBooks and documents from your computer or smartphone to our eReader wirelessly with your Dropbox account.

Enjoy reading by the water, worry-free

Fully waterproof with HZO Protection™, Kobo Forma is always ready for unexpected spills or bathtime reader bliss.*

*Meets requirements of IPX8 rating. Waterproof for up to 60 minutes in up to 2 metres of water.

The perfect light, day or night

ComfortLight PRO allows you to adjust the brightness or temperature of your screen. As the day goes on, it gradually reduces blue light which limits eyestrain, so you can read before bed without affecting your sleep.
