Despite fierce competition from Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Nobel's Nook offerings, Toronto-based Kobo Inc. has carved out a niche in the e-reader market by offering quality, no-frills eReaders.

Kobo announced its first eReader in 2010, and has since added several new products to its lineup, each with a slightly different reading experience. Below, we’ve analyzed the special features and major differences between each of Kobo's current e-readers: the Kobo Glo, Kobo Aura, and Kobo Aura HD.

Though each Kobo device differs from the next, all Kobo ereaders allow users to personalize their libraries, make notes, highlight key terms, change fonts, use the dictionary, create bookmarks, and, of course, take advantage of Kobo's extensive eBookstore. Each Kobo eReader also comes with a flat button-less front with built in front-light for reading in the dark.
