Kobo Touch N905/B/C difference ?

Hello everyone!

I've just bought a Kobo Touch from WHSmith as they are £40 currently but I wanted to know the differences between the N905, N905B and N905C models?

I've read that the newer models had and internal SD card but what is that for? And are they more powerful or reliable?


Mine is N905 so I guess it's an old model ? I would not like to have a product which has been stored for 2 years...

Thanks for your help!

PS: Sorry if my english is not correct but I have an excuse, I'm french

For most users, other than a possibly older battery on the earlier models there shouldn't be a significant difference in processing power or reliability.
The newer models with internal SD card means you could swap it out for a larger sized one with a bit of work. There were a few differences with the firmware between them, but generally most users won't see this (just make sure you pick the correct one if you sideload a firmware version).

Well, I'd add that in the event the firmware gets scrambled in such a way that a normal recovery is not possible having the internal SDHC card does give one the option of copying a new image to it and recovering the device that way. I've had my Touch require my going back to the original firmware stored on it during an OTA firmware update, so having the internal SDHC can be considered an extra level of protection.

Bah. I had a N905C, but after the RMA I got a N905.

I noticed the battery gauge isn't as accurate on the N905, and the rubber is a little thicker on the N905. Other than that, I don't notice much of a difference myself.
