    Rakuten-owned e-book and tablet maker Kobo has partnered with ‘read it later’ service Pocket, while unveiling four new devices that go on sale next month.

    Support for Pocket will be built into all of its devices, marking a first for the Web bookmarking company. That will allow users to save items as they read them, and access and manage their list of stored content right from the devices, both offline and online.
