No, the Kobo Original did not have WiFi and had a different, slower processor. This one is the device right before the Kobo Touch.

Ah, but this one had Pearl? I seem to remember the better screen coming out before the touchscreen.

No, this one has 16 level greyscale screen, compared to the Kobo-1 which had 8 level greyscale.

I gave one of my old ones loaded with books to a relative and she loves it. I sometimes still use one in stead of my KT and it is like a good old friend. Missing some KT features good and bad but still fine for reading epub books but not for PDF books.

I went to check this out. Kobo requires you to buy $40.00 worth of something before you get free shipping. I wonder if ebooks apply to the total or if it is just hardware.

The shipping for this deal is free.

Edit. Well, in Canada it is, at least. The deal had a 'Order over $39 - free'

No shipping to the USA today. I guess they changed it overnight. There was shipping on it yesterday.

They usually take a bit of time to ship it out.

I got an email this morning that mine was just shipped.

Just got this email.

"We want to extend our apologies for the delayed delivery of your Kobo WiFi device. Unfortunately, due to an error in our system, we are unable to provide you with the black Kobo WiFi device as you requested. We will be sending you a Kobo WiFi device in silver instead. Your new eReader will arrive no later than today, May 11 2012."

Not a big deal for me... but would've been nice to get notified before shipping.
