Great news for booklovers coming soon from @kobo. Keep your eyes wide open mid-August! #OpenUpKobo pic.twitter.com/UeKXU5bNmD— Michael Tamblyn (@mtamblyn) July 27, 2016
Michael Tamblyn, CEO at Rakuten Kobo, seems to be announcing the release of a new Kobo device(s) in mid-August 2016. If indeed Kobo is releasing a device(s) it is probably the same device(s) noted in recent FCC fillings. A 7.8 inch E-Ink reader is the stand-out, if accurate, as it will be the largest e-reader, since the Kindle DX, released by a major vendor.
