We have many customers who are comics- and manga-enthusiasts, and they have told us they need more space to hold their vast collections, especially in markets like Japan, but really anywhere that manga fans are found. Kobo Aura ONE Limited Edition has the extra memory they need, which then creates more space at home, in your bag, or in your backpack. It’s also great for our most valuable customers who just have thousands and thousands of ebooks and want them all available all the time. It’s just another example of how we design and build new devices with a view to making our customers’ reading lives easier and better.
