All for $139.
Kobo wifi has taken steps in the right direction -- as they have the multitude of product enhancements in the past month. This is a credible alternative and sets up the Q4 selling season quite well. Let's hope they can handle the volume -- it's a bad time of year to run out of stock!
You mean the kobo will be 149$? right? or is 139 the US pricing?
