I'm not sure when this started (Kobo Arc pre-orders were "coming soon" every time I checked before today), but the Kobo Arc is now showing as pre-orderable on Chapters/Indigo's website: http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/ereadi...2030-item.html
A reminder that the Arc's storage has been bumped up (16GB for $199.99, 32GB for $249.99, and a new 64GB $299.99 SKU). With the ability to get 64GB out of the box at a reasonable price, I'm no longer particularly concerned about the lack of SD card support.
Just pre-ordered one for my partner now. Each size is available in either black or silver, too.
