Huge 8-inch screen • Extremely lightweight at 197 grams • Waterproof up to 60 mins in 2 meters of water • Backlight changes from blue to yellow during evening
Expensive for an e-reader • Will not fit in your jeans pockets • Ultra-thin screen feels flimsy
The Kobo Forma is an excellent e-reader for anyone who doesn’t mind paying a little extra. It looks outstanding and feels great to hold. But this is a classic case of form over function.
