I got one last week to carry around with me for my commute etc. Great size for my purse (mine are rather small...),and the screen shows a lot more of a page than my phone. Surprisingly, I don't find it hard to switch from my Sony to the Mini, page turns are quick, fonts are clear and the UI easy to use.
No buyer's regret here!

I saw that and jumped on it. Both colors are in stock. I bought one of each to donate as raffle prizes. It's going to be so hard to not open a box. Although... maybe I should check them out, just in case something is wrong with one.

Got one! It will be here the 16th or 17th. I am a Happy Camper! Looks like the perfect size for my purse! I had already ordered it an Oberon mini sleeve (which they are discontinuing unfortunately) so it even has a nice place to live in my purse.

Yes I think you should try them out to make sure they work.. A couple of weeks on each should suffice no really that is nice that you got them for a raffle. maybe you will win one back..

Wish I could see what color is on the back of the white reader. I assume it's going to be silver. All the pictures I can find are for the black one.

I've got a delivery date of 17 Oct, but I figure they're coming by mail, so who knows when they will show up.

All the ones I saw at Chapters-Indigo and Best Buy here in Canada had black/black or white/silver. The other colours are the ones you can buy separately as a snap back...

Thanks, Chantal! That's what I needed to know. Whomever wins them, can buy their own backs if they want to. I just wanted to make certain the back was a neutral color.

robedrob, same here last week---I actually had it in my cart and while checking out they sold out...I typed in my credit card and hit Place Order...and it said the item had been removed from my cart because it was no longer available. So close! But I made it today! My old Kobo is dead as a doornail and refuses to update so I will be really glad to see this one show up on my doorstep.

Got myself a neoprene case for my Mini today from Amazon since nothing appears to be available anywhere...It's not really a Mini case, it's a 5" gps case with almost exactly the same measurements as the Mini. It comes with a little mini-stylus which I wouldn't likely use with it as there is no audio on the Mini (therefore no place to plug it in) but I can use it with my smartphone.
This is what I got: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41dF7dO4O3L.jpg for $4.99.
I'll post back when I get it to comment on the fit etc.

If these had the same high-res screen as the Glo (but of course at smaller resolution, but same PPI), I might have just gotten one of these. But I'm waiting for the Glo

Nice to see that Kobo is working out their supply chain hiccups though

Went ahead and ordered one today. I still want the Glo, but this will keep me entertained until they become available.

I went today to local Fnac and I saw Kobo Mini. What a cutie!!! Somebody next to me was asking for Kobo Glo but there were none on display. I fell in love with the mini. but I don't need 4th ereader (sniff)

Is it wrong of me to want mini, even though I own two (!) Sony PRS-350s (same size screen)?
