Kobo Arc takes on the Nexus 7 as it goes on sale in the UK

Kobo has unleashed its latest tablet on the UK, with Canada and France also in line to get the colour-screen Kobo Arc.

In the UK, you’ll be able to get your hands on an Arc from WHSmith priced at £160 for the 16GB edition and £190 for the 32GB model.

The 7-inch e-reader-flavoured-tablet is Google-certified, so it runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich (although Kobo is working on a Jelly Bean upgrade too).

That means you’ve got the world of Google Books and Google Play store apps and games at your fingertips.

‘Arc at Kobo

The display is 1280×800 pixels deep and there’s a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM keeping the thing ticking along.

Unfortunately there’s no cellular option, so you’ll be stuck hunting down Wi-Fi while out and about.

An iPad mini this ain’t, but if you’re on a budget then the Kobo Arc is at least an alternative to the likes of the Google Nexus 7 which starts at a similar £159 for the 16GB edition.
