This makes a lot of sense, since there's a revenue sharing element with bookstore partners.

It's got me thinking... I normally buy my Kobo devices from bookstores, but when I recently got my Kobo Glo I got it from Best Buy because they got it in significantly sooner than Chapters/Coles did locally. Are they just selling it as an unaffiliated device and Kobo gets all the revenues, or does Best Buy/Future Shop get a share? Because I buy a lot of books from Kobo, and it would be my preference not to share any of that revenue with BB/FS.
