Chapters/Indigo now taking Kobo Arc pre-orders online

I'm not sure when this started (Kobo Arc pre-orders were "coming soon" every time I checked before today), but the Kobo Arc is now showing as pre-orderable on Chapters/Indigo's website: http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/ereadi...2030-item.html

A reminder that the Arc's storage has been bumped up (16GB for $199.99, 32GB for $249.99, and a new 64GB $299.99 SKU). With the ability to get 64GB out of the box at a reasonable price, I'm no longer particularly concerned about the lack of SD card support.

Just pre-ordered one for my partner now. Each size is available in either black or silver, too.

My Tab is 32 gb without SD card support and after almost a year, I can say that it is enough for me... 64 gb would be great for someone saving a lot of videos to their tablet and $299 is definitely a great price for that much storage!

I must admit that I do wonder if my partner will need all 64GB, but I feel the need to buy it because I can't add it later. And the extra cost seems reasonable compared to how much the competition charges for an extra 32GB of storage.

Sucks that I bought her a huge microSD card for her Vox, though, that we no longer can use in that device. Oh well, perhaps we'll get a Windows 8 tablet that accepts microSD, that would make everything alright again.
