Kobo Touch now available in Best Buy stores in Dallas/Fort Worth area

Kobo Touch now available in Best Buy stores in Dallas/Fort Worth area, specifically the Arlington, Texas area, according to the Best Buy website at least. I haven't verified in person as it is way too hot to be making unnecessary trips outside in this record breaking heat.

I hear there hasn't been any rain in that area for about 2 months. Stay inside and order online

Yep. Our area lakes are evaporating at a rate of over 2 inches per day! It is always hot and dry here in the summer, but this year is exceptionally hot. I feel like the penguins in the Madagascar movie and have a strange desire to move to Antartica.

Lucky you...about the Kobo Touch not your weather. I wish we would get them here at a Best Buy store in Minnesota.

Do the Touch demo units in Best Buy have the latest firmware?

I still haven't ventured off the beaten path yet to check them out. It is literally hitting 108 degrees every afternoon here, so I tend to only get out and about when I have to as I really don't want to melt.

@Scion, Yep, the new address seemed appropriate! It looks like we are going to break all the records from the previous worst year of 1980.

I stopped by a Best Buy last night (Manchester, CT), and they had one on display. I wasn't able to try it out; It appeared to be stuck on a screen that said something about charging (I tried disconnecting the USB cable, sliding the power button, and pushing the button on the front screen).
