Check on ebay? Maybe some enterprising canadian will start re-selling?

I'm surprised foreigners are interested in the Kobo, since it does not support foreign fonts in epubs properly....

I want a black kobo but I can't order it since I'm in the US.
I don't see why it would matter even if they are releasing them in the summer at Borders.

Thanks was wondering when borders was going to add anything about it on their webpage. Just need to find out if I can preorder the black one.
Don't like the bright blue button thingy.
