I think it's a bit early to get really worried. I went to Chapters today and played with the display model and it worked well. It's not an ipad, or even a playbook, but for the price point and considering it's primarily an ereader I still think it's quite nice.

The screen with a book on it is beautiful and crisp, the page turns are instant and it didn't take long to load up a book or comic. Youtube worked fine for me, and the browser loaded right up.

Any issues we're seeing now are likely software based. Until I see widespread reports of crashes/freezes I'm not going to be worried. As of now it's still a "buy" next week.

That being said it seems like there are kinks to be ironed out, and Kobo could have done a better job with the setup and initial charge procedures at the very least.
