Kobo Libra H2O Clears the FCC

A new Kobo cleared the FCC Friday morning.

All the more interesting details are embargoed in the FCC filing, but based on what I found online, I think it's going to be called the Kobo Libra H2O.

I hope Kobo's finally rolling out a 6" waterproof reader. A 6" Kobo device that is both waterproof and matches the rest of the features on the Clara would get me to buy one even though my Clara is less than a year old.

I'm guessing, though, that the Libra H2O would probably be a replacement for the Aura H2O. (My guesses are probably worth about zilch.)

This is what I'm secretly hoping for, a successor of the Aura that keeps the Aura format (not the Forma).

I still use my Aura HD, and I was ready to upgrade to the Aura One when they ceased producing it. I wonder what void the Libra H2O will try to fill. Might this be the first audiobook player ebook from Kobo?

You may well be right. But what would they add to the Aura H2O at this point?

They've never released a 6" waterproof reader, so fingers crossed, though I suspect it'll be a 6.8"

I'm crossing my fingers for a flexible substrate.

(Is "Libra" a well-known tampon brand elsewhere, or just here?)
