Well, my quest to own a Kobo has hit a snag. None of the retailers that Kobo lists as selling the Kobo Aura in Australia are actually selling it yet. Kobo says that it is out but I need to contact stores individually. Angus & Robertson they said they were expecting stock mid-October. JB Hi Fi and Big W both say to watch the website for updates. Interestingly, you can’t order the Aura via Kobo’s website as of 21 Sept even though there aren’t problems with the other eReaders. When you try to order it, you get an ‘oops, this page cannot be found’ screen instead. I’m wondering if there are stock problems.
I checked the Kobo website on 25 September and it seems as if the black Kobo Aura is back in stock. The pink doesn’t seem to be available yet though.
