Device: kobo, nook
"Lotte" Kobo Glo

Anybody heard of this device? My Glo is getting elderly, so I googled for a replacement and got this:

https://www.qoo10.sg/item/LOTTE-KOBO...ner_no=1305330

The sort-of auto-translate from Chinese is quaintly confusing, but it seems to suggest that it comes with Koreader built in.

Comments appreciated - even along the lines of 'avoid at all costs'.

Thank you,

Ol.

I don't know where you are but the shipping rate to the UK does seem a bit stiff. Over one third of the price of the reader.

From the description it looks like these are ex-display items, perhaps from stores where they may have been subject to hard wear. However in the Q&A at the bottom of the page it says they are new (if so why no box etc).

As you say the language used definitely needs inspired interpretation, but they do mention KOReader quite specifically

With shipping it works out at £81.45 (according to XE currency converter. That seems expensive for a kobo glo copy, or even an original glo. If it was me I would be tempted to either buy the new Clara for £109 or scource a new battery for your current glo.

I still 2 glo's that I am still happily using, although I bought 1 on ebay as a backup ereader.

Have a look on AliExpress - they have Glos for about GBP52 including shipping.

A couple of the stores offer them with KOReader installed.

Many thanks, all.

I shall now find out about Ali (excluding the forty thieves, I hope).

Happy days,

Ol.

The price is too high. Definitely not worth it. Either find a different site to buy a Glo or buy a different model Kobo. Personally, I'd go for a different model with a higher resolution screen. The Glo is a bit outdated these days.
