Rakuten’s eReader company Kobo has reveled a new eReader called the Kobo Glo HD which rivals Amazon’s Kindle Voyage.

Kobo’s new device, which comes out on May 1st, features a high resolution 6-inch eInk display. The device is only $129.99, and competes directly with the $199.99 Kindle Voyage.

Here is more about the device from the Kobo website:

Kobo Glo HD is lighter than a hardcover book and lets you store thousands of eBooks. Take your entire library on vacation or wherever you go and switch between eBooks easily for a simpler, more convenient way to read. Plus, with up to 2 months of battery life, read an entire eBook on a single charge and enjoy the freedom of leaving your charger behind.
