Double the default storage of a Kobo Glo at 4GB (expandable via SD card), it has a 6.8" e-ink infrared touchscreen boasting a resolution of 1440x1080 for 265dpi.

Announced in Britain on Monday with partner WHSmith, the Aura is available for pre-order and the web has a good amount of coverage. Good e-reader has a hands-on review already.
