Apparently Kobo is going with an "anywhere but U.S." marketing strategy, which I find amazing and damned annoying.

My response to this is that I will never, ever, buy a book from Kobo, even after I eventually get my hands on a Glo and/or a Mini.
I guess you don't know that the 2 are not the same company? Kobo books are owned by Chapters-Indigo, a Canadian company, and Kobo hardware is Rakuten, a Japanese company (since last year when Chapters-Indigo sold the hardware division to them) who operate separately...
