I received the following item(s) for in exchange for a fair and honest review. Although I received the item for review, the opinions stated are 100% my own.


I had the amazing opportunity to review the Kobo Arc tablet. This tablet is amazing, I’m in love with it.


The kobo has a 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor, and 1 GB of low-power RAM, Kobo Arc is the fastest dual-core 7” tablet on the market. 

I love the tapestry feature. On most tablets all your apps are listed in alphabetical order. With the tapestry feature you can organize the apps into categories that fit you. For example, my candy crush and pet rescue saga etc, are in a tapestry games. My email, browser, Facebook etc is in Social. You can make as many tapestries as you want.

There are thousands of apps to choose from since this is an android tablet, it supports the google play store. 

I’m impressed with the battery life. I can use this tablet all day and it stays charged. I listen to music at night to help me sleep. I can have the Kobo running all night and it doesn’t die. 

There are a lot of people that don’t choose to get a tablet because they are back lit. I have photo sensitivity problems. I can get eye strain very quickly. With the Kobo Arc I have not had any issues at all with eye strain. I can use the tablet for hours and it doesn’t bother me.

You can also adjust the screen brightness. I adjust it late at night not to wake my husband and I can still enjoy it comfortably. 

The Kobo Arc has a front facing camera. That makes it tricky to get use to taking pictures with it. However, because the camera is front facing you can use skype on the arc. How cool is that? Skype even comes already installed. 

Kobo Arc with a choice of 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB models. Kobo Arc is the only 7″ tablet that offers 64 GB of flash memory storage right out of the box. The model I have is the 16 GB. I have 2 pages of apps and still have tons of storage left. 

You can carry all your books, movies, music and pictures with you. I love that I can carry it in my purse for when I know I’ll be waiting for long periods of time.

Kobo Arc 16 GB for $139.99
Kobo Arc 32 GB for $179.99
Kobo Arc 64 GB for $199.99

If someone on your list this holiday season wants a tablet, or maybe you want one you can’t go wrong with a Kobo Arc.
