The new Kobo Glo HD, boasting a high-resolution screen, will begin rolling out May 1.

Due out May 1 in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, May 22 in France and June 1 in the UK, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Spain, the Glo HD is to retail for $129.99 CAD/USD.

It has a 300ppi, 6" Carta E Ink HD touch screen and a 1GHz processor, plus 4GB of storage and a weight of 180g -- "about the same as a sushi roll," says the company.
Kobo, which is owned by Japanese e-commerce company Rakuten, previously released the waterproof e-reader Aura H2O in August 2014.
