The Kobo Libra 2 e-reader has reached the end of its life

Kobo Libra 2 e-reader end of life

According to the official Kobo website, the Kobo Libra 2 e-reader is sold out. Although still available from a number of vendors, all indications are that this e-reader will soon disappear from the catalog, following the release of the new version with color screen: the Kobo Libra Colour.

The Kobo Libra 2 has been available since 2021, and this e-reader was a real “coup de coeur” for me.

It has an excellent display, with a 7-inch black and white e-ink screen (Carta 1200 technology and high definition). The screen is perfectly complemented by its lighting and a blue light filter - the Comfort Light Pro system.

But what I really like about this e-reader is the quality of its construction and its format with buttons on the side.

Today, this e-reader is no longer available on the official Kobo website.

The brand is highlighting new color e-ink models, such as the Kobo Clara Colour (read the review here) and above all the Kobo Libra Colour, which builds on the strengths of the Kobo Libra 2 by adding a Kaleido 3 color screen.

But that doesn't mean the Kobo Libra 2 is no longer recommendable.

In fact, it's still available on a number of sites, and I think you'll find it at a very good price soon (if it isn't today). So it's still a good buy for people who want a really good e-reader and don't need or want a color screen.

On the other hand, if you're looking for a recent e-reader with the latest technological advances in digital reading, you'll need to look out for the Kobo Libra Colour, which replaces the Kobo Libra 2.
