Tech Gifts For Mom – GlobalTV Tech Talk

Tech Gifts For Mom – GlobalTV Tech Talk

On Monday’s Tech Talk segment, Andy showed us some great gift ideas for dad. Today Lindsay talked about fabulous Christmas gifts for mom. Our featured product is the Kobo Aura H20:

Kobo Aura H20

Average Price: $180

koboThe Aura H20 from Kobo is the perfect gift for mom. For those unfamiliar with Kobo, they are essentially digital reading tablets that emulate the look of paper-printed books and magazines. What’s great about this particular Kobo eReader is that it is water proof — So mom can read her favorite novels in the bath, or accidentally spill wine on it with no worries.
The Kobo Aura H20 comes with 4GB of built-in storage, so you can hold up to 3,000 books (available through Kobo’s eBookstore.) Or if that’s not enough room, mom can expand the memory via the micro SD card slot.

Another great feature is that any book purchased on your Kobo can be read on your smartphone, tablet or computer using the free Kobo app. Bookmarks remain synced across all devices, so picking up where you left off is a breeze.
Check out the Kobo website for more information and technical specifications.
