Kobo’s next Android tablet could challenge the iPad

Digital bookseller Kobo is reportedly working on a 10-inch Android tablet with better specs than Apple’s iPad.

The so-called Kobo Arc 10 HD tablet apparently recently showed up at the GLBenchmarks website and while the results were subsequently removed, both AndroidOS.in and Eeevolution managed to grab screenshots.

Kobo has tried with tablets before, launching the budget 7-inch Kobo Arc tablet to a generally positive reception back in September last year.


Also, from Liliputing: the Kobo Arc 10 HD has some of the best specs you’re likely to find on a tablet in the next few months. Kobo also has a habit of pricing its tablets competitively, in hopes of getting users to buy the tablet and use it to purchase content from the Kobo eBook store. So it’s possible that the company’s first 10 inch tablet could have a retail price much lower than the $500 asking price for the similarly-specced Toshiba Excite Pro tablet.
