Best way to get a Kobo Touch in Europe?

Hi!

I am looking to get a Kobo Touch for some weeks now. But currently it seems nobody sells the e-reader in Europe. I checked bestbuy.com today and it is in stock now. But of course they do not sell it to international customers ...

Are there other possibilities to get one?

Thank you,
Lilo

Apparently Fry's in the USA sells to international custoerms.
Borders did too, but since they're now in liquidation, I wouldn't reccommend using Borders anymore.
I'm sure I read that the Kobo will be sold in Germany very soon if you can wait.

You can make use of one of these services:
http://www.shipito.com/
http://www.usa2me.com/
http://www.oneusaaddress.com/

Or you wait a little bit until its available in Germany
As far as I know has WHSmith in the UK already the Kobo Wifi on stock.
But I heard also that they do not shipoutsade UK neither. At least this is closer to you than US/CAN

Thank you guys for your help. As Kobo said it would start in Europe in August, I will wait a little bit longer and try to get it here then.

bye Lilo

You will need a US mail address to have them shipped to you. I'm using http://www.nybox.com/ and BongoUS, their shipping rates may differ from time to time since both frequently go on sale or give discounts to their shipping rates.

Nevermind I didn't read the date on the OP. She surely has this taken care of now.
