Heads Up: Kobo Aura Update

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.

  1. I had problems getting a Kobo as well. I wanted the Kobo touch in one of those nice blue or lilac shades but could I get one in a 30 mile radius of where I live? Nope! I was told the nearest shop that had it was about 300 miles away and they refused to order it for me. In the end I had to go for a blue Kobo Glo which was more expensive! But I do love the Glo now that I have it. Only issue is that Kobo Store won’t take a debit card and I don’t have a credit card so I can’t buy anything at all for it. I’m relying on free downloads. Mind you in 5 weeks I got 250 free books so it’s not a disaster.

    Hope you get your Kobo soon!

    • 250 in 5 weeks is phenomenal. To be honest, because I can’t have it yet, I want my Kobo even more. Fingers crossed it’s only a few more weeks as my Sony PRS-T1 freezes or resets every 10-20 pages.
