While packing my drawer today, saw my super old Amazon Kindle collecting dust in it. Recently, I have been using my iPad and Samsung Notes 2 for reading and almost forget about it.
Wanting to get a new eBook Readers with E-Ink Display, I start to do some researches about them. The first one I notice is obviously Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite. After some digging, I find a second one – Kobo Aura HD. Both readers look great.
Kindle Paperwhite vs Kobo Aura HD
When comparing both readers, I notice that Kobo Aura HD has a much higher screen size and resolution, but weigh 20g more.
Kobo Aura HD – 6.8″ display; 265 dpi, 1440 x 1080 resolution

Kindle Paperwhite – 6″ display; 212 ppi, 1024 x 768 resolution
