Kobo Not Shipping Vox Till Nov. 7th Now...

At least, that's what the email said that I just got:

Due to overwhelming demand, we are sorry to inform you that your order of the Kobo Vox™ eReader will not ship until November 7, 2011.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and as thanks for your loyalty to Kobo, we'd like to extend an offer of 25% off any selected book from the following list.

Use discount code: vox25oct28
Expiry: Nov 4th, 2011

Thank you again for your patience. We know you'll love the Kobo Vox™ eReader as much as we do.


I am very happy that I cancelled my order with them and bought my Vox locally!!!

I haven't gotten that email. I ordered my Vox on the second day of preorders hopefully that means I will ship on Monday or Tuesday this week.

I ordered mine the first day about 4:00pm (EST) and my order still says pending. No new emails since with any delays. So I am hoping mine will be shipped tomorrow. I went to Chapters and played with Demo and really liked it. If i don't have any new update I will just go buy one.

This is strange. I ordered my jet black one on the 27th, it was shipped on the 28th and it's scheduled to be delivered November 1st or 2nd. Could location or colour make a difference?

Location specific kind of makes sense. None of the Best Buys here (Midwest U.S.) even have demos yet. Am I right to assume most of the people who've received or picked up a Vox are Canadians?

Yup. It's in store. One of the Chapters folk say there's an update being released on Nov 2, too. We'll see.

Moolyn...did you order yours through Kobo? I ordered a blue one and I noticed they seemed to have sold out first at Future Shop when you look online. Very strange.

I haven't gotten this email from KOBO yet, so I am hoping to that mine is shipping very soon. I ordered from KOBO the day after the Vox was released.

The good news though is that I was able to use the coupon code and buy a book I've been wanting that was over $16 ... the 25% off was really nice. Thanks KOBO!

p.s. I don't think the book I ordered was from the list.

A very nice lady at the phone help desk cancelled my preorder and I went to Future Shop to buy mine. Mine should have gone out on the 28th (order #96) but somehow did not.
