(Reuters) - Kobo is launching a new tablet
device and a more compact e-reader as it seeks to expand its
market share and battle with Apple Inc and Amazon.com
Inc in the ultra-competitive mobile device marketplace.
Toronto-based Kobo, owned by Rakuten Inc, Japan's
top e-commerce operator, will launch the new devices in the next
two months, as Amazon -- the world's largest Internet retailer
-- reportedly prepares to unveil a new tablet, along with an
update of its popular Kindle e-reader.
