Cannot pre-order new Kobos anywhere for U.S.

I've looked at all the US Where to Buy sites for Kobo, but none offer pre-orders for the new models.

I tried indigo.ca, and got all the way through the pre-order process, only to find that they will not ship any electronic devices to the US.

Very annoying!

Still true today - no pre-order possible in the U.S.
Sigh...

New retail partners are a part of this rollout.

Kobo is bringing on a lot of new retail partners for their hardware in the form of their ABA/indie bookstore deal. It's roughly dovetailing with the introduction of the new hardware lines.

Perhaps they don't want to cannibalize bookstore walkup business to the benefit of e-tailers. My own local bookstore told me they expected to be selling the new HW in November. I want a glo real bad, but I can wait until my local store has the chance to sell it to me.
