The Kobo eReader’s motherboard looks as expected. The device relies on a Samsung S3C2440 mobile application processor. This device features an ARM9 (920T) core and runs at 400 MHz. SDRAM from Hynix and Samsung is also visible on the Kobo eReader’s motherboard, along with Samsung flash memory which provides the eReader’s 1 GB of storage.
