Could be, but I'm used to seeing initial purchase orders in the thousands for stock like this. Five per store isn't that many when you consider how long follow-up orders tend to take for stock like this (two to four weeks has been the average time in my experience). That said, my experiences haven't been with JB, but another large-ish Australian electronics retailer with a different ordering system (JB has one less layer of bureaucracy with their ordering process).

As far as I know, too, the Touch has been fairly popular. Most of the JB stores I've been to since they started carrying it have had ten or more in stock at any one time. If it is five Glos and one Mini per store, that's really not many.

Maybe I'm just over-thinking this.
We're also going through a phase of seeing some well known Australian companies closing their doors with huge debts. JBHiFi could be controlling their debt, or are overstretched in the credit area and can't order too much $$$ worth of product.

Or it could be that the manufacturer didn't have any more to sell at this point - didn't someone mention in another thread that their were production delays or issues or some such?

JB Hi-Fi ( Geelong )have Kobo Minis - 7 to be exact but no Glo. They must be getting them soon because they have pink sleep covers. I assume they are for the Glo. I checked in Officeworks but just got a shrug of the shoulders

I realised after replying, but the effort required to amend my post was too much for me to bear, and so I had a lie down instead.

Harris Tech - $138 - still 'no stock' (+ postage)

Harvey Norman - $160 - no stock against NSW postcodes. (First time I've seen them mentioned on the website, so prob means they're on their way to Narv Norm)

JB Hifi had the Mini in-store today. It is so small and cute...

They are expecting the Glo... well...when I asked, my favourite JBHiFier went to one of the netbooks on display, brought up the public JB HiFi website and checked it out. She then did something on her magic JB Hifi Tech device. Couldn't give me an availablity date.

I guess what Malcolm is saying is that the agreed Australian release date is Monday 3 December.

Well, only 2 days before we confirm that, eh!!

No Glo on the shelves today.

Office Works have suggested this Friday, 7/12.

Wait and see, eh.

JB didn't have the Glo today. And didn't know when they'd show up.
