The Kobo Mini is an eBook reader produced by Kobo Inc. It is a miniature, touch based eBook reader.
It was initially released at the price of $79.99 in North America, but a $30 discount was offered during the Black Friday season of 2012. Later promotions offered a free Kobo Mini when purchasing a Kobo Arc tablet.
The main application used by the Kobo Mini is the digital reader for books, newspaper, magazines and any document in the ePub, Kobo or PDF file formats. Many libraries, such as the Ottawa Public Library and the Toronto Public Library, offer a Kobo-compatible program for borrowing library books.
Formats include PDF and ePub, of which, ePub requires a separate sign-in to authenticate the use of the DRM materials at Adobe.
Four experimental apps are included, but Kobo does not provide technical support for them. This includes Chess and Sudoku games, a drawing app and a web browser.
