Black Kobo

Still trying to find a online store that sells the black one for international buyers (me). If anyone knows one I'd appreciate.

Have you tried Chapters/Indigo Books? They seem to have shipping rates for international delivery and you can select a black or white Kobo.

Last week I went to my usual place in the square near the office to read during lunch and the girl I sat beside whipped out her black Kobo. So we exchanged a look and sat there like bookends reading on our Kobo's.

I did notice that the black one seems to show fingerprints and smudges much more than my white one.

On the other hand, on the morning train ride when I pull out my Kobo after reading the paper, I pretty much always get ink smudges on it from my thumbs.

Chapters/Canada isn't shipping internationally - at this point in time. But a very friendly rep just advised me that that may change. Just watch their sites for details. Or call them.

Does Borders Online Australia ship internationally? They have Black Kobos. I guess you could try? http://www.borders.com.au/ereader/

*reg*: I contacted them about a week ago, still waiting for an answer.
gandor62: You mean a physical store or bought online directly from that store you mentioned? I also contacted them and got no answer and there is not even a place to say you live in another country while creating an account there.

My wife of 24 years might have something to say about that.

Every good love story needs some tragedy. or how about a Fatal Attraction type storyline?

Ask Kobo corporate directly: Who might have black units in stock and will deliver to your country.

clintbradford: Just done that. Thanks for the suggestion, sometimes the most obvious course of action we can't see.

>> ... sometimes the most obvious course of action we can't see ...

I am in my mid-50s in age. I cannot remember such an excellent quality of support from a corporation for a US$150 device in my lifetime ...

I have had an excellent relationship with Verizon Wireless for a decade or so ... But not the immediate replies that I have received from the folks at Kobo corporate.

I certainly HOPE that others realize this fact. Kobo corporate CARES about how INDIVIDUAL consumers are using their Kobo eReaders. It irks me when I see messages like, "My Kobo is a brick - fix it NOW!" or "Me, too ... " posts. We have direct contact info all over this message service for Kobo reps - and they are responsive, HELPFUL, and bending over backwards to please the end users.

Now, then, if I could only get my local Borders retail stores to be as excited as I am with device ... but that's another thread.
