The Kobo Arc starts at $200 for 16GB, which is the current going rate for quality 7-inch tablets; however, the Arc fails to offer enough compelling reasons to get you to consider it over the competition.

The Kobo Arc is fairly thin, but has an undeniably blocky design.

The Discover Ribbon at the bottom of the home screen provides you with constant recommendations that never go away.

A volume rocker sitting right next to a headphone jack. Seems appropriate.

The smooth, comfortable back cover is easily replaceable with a different-colored version.

The Arc's 1,280x800-pixel screen resolution looks great in games, but it's quite reflective and prone to glare.
