Packed with tons of cool features, and available in black or white, it comes standard with a natural touchscreen and convenient Wi-Fi access to over 3 million eBooks including bestsellers, hidden gems, magazines and newspapers. The world's smallest and lightest, full-featured eReader can hold up to 1,000 books, has a durable 5" no-glare Pearl E Ink screen so text looks crisp and clear (even in bright sunlight) and can also be used to surf the internet.

Kobo SleepCover is the only case that communicates with your Kobo Mini, creating a natural reading experience similar to reading a paperback book.

Not the least bit impressed

By dianal

from Hamilton

Purchased this as a show special to use while on holidays. When I first received it, I did the set up, went to the Kobo site and downloaded three books and started to read one book (as of today only 1% read)to see how the e-reader would work. I then put Kobo back in the original box until this week when I took it out to charge it up for my vacation. I charged it and then tried to open a book, nothing would happen, had partial cover of book on screen and unable to access any function keys. Have dealt with on line customer service with live chat and also emailed them, They tell me it is physical damage sorry for my luck nothing they can do. This Kobo was kept in the box on a book shelf away from heat sources, etc. I asked how it could suffer physical damage and didn't receive a reply ... I am now out $$$ and no ereader ... not impressed

Very Disappointed now

By Ktkat1949

Silver Reviewer

I rated this ereader five stars when I first got it.
Now 5 weeks later the Kobo mini will not take a charge it is basically useless to me. Once the battery goes in the Kobo you might as well throw it away as the batteries can't be replaced. I can't be bothered with the hassle of dealing with Kobo customer service as apparently is terrible. Will go out and buy another ereader and warn others not to buy this make.

I love my first e-reader!

By Watty

Silver Reviewer

I purchased the Kobo mini in white with a purple cover. I absolutely love it. Each electronic page is crisp and easy to read. I like that you can sync your Kobo account on either a Windows or Mac operating system. The battery life is great, and the size is perfect when you are travelling light. It's the perfect e-reader for me.

I have been a lover of kobo for ages now. I read often and this smaller size is perfect for your pocket or purse and very light weight too.

Mixed feelings about Kobo Mini

By Ktkat1949

from Victoria BC

Silver Reviewer

I got this at an excellent price as a showstopper.
The problems that I have with the Kobo are not the
fault of TSC I want to make that clear. The problem I have are the same as Debbie from Alberta. The tech industry thinks everyone knows all the slang and tech language. Guess what we don't!No instructions came with device. You look online and there are some instructions but I found them difficult to understand. It basically took me two whole days to get connected to kobo and my local library. Once it was done it was great. Until it started to freeze,skip pages, go backwards etc. When it works it is fine when it doesn't which is 70% of time it is one big pain.
Would not buy this brand again. Also would get the
backlit kind.

Bought the Kobo mini as a showstopper

By Debbie W

from Alberta

Bronze Reviewer

I have been using my Kobo mini for only a few days now and already so frustrated. It locks up and I'm constantly having to power off and back on to get it working right. Sometimes the page advance tap spot actually reverses the pages, often the Reading Menu won't go away when I am done with it. I like the idea, the look and the feel of the Kobo mini...although was surprised that everything was in black nd white..no color covers. It's cute and would be very handy IF it responded to the taps properly but just adds agrivation to my reading truth be known. Is it just me? I have read the userguide so am doing things correctly but it just doesn't respond sometimes. I guess it will be going back...So disappointed. :(

Perfect book size

By Jewels

from Toronto

Gold Reviewer

Invested in white one with berry cover when offered as the Showstopper in February. Feels good in the hand. Easy to read and love that the battery lasts so long. Kobo sends emails with book suggestions and discounts frequently. I am reading much more now that I have my kobo mini. Also light weight and travels well.
