Most Google searches in the USA seem to be localized (local results show
up first), it might be the same in Canada. There are a few places, like the
PC Case Mod sites that offer kits with small sheets.

It is my opinion that you Kobo guys will be seeing a bunch of us who only
just now gained an interest in Kobo because of the Aura HD. There should
be plenty of newbees like me here asking our stupid questions, for a while.

Aura HD is a shiny piano black.
The real question (for us devs): is there an internal micro SD card?

I will shortly remove the four screws, on the corners, and take a peek (and
a pic.).

What the above means is that if you eject and replace an SD card, it is reasonable fast. But, if you eject it and put a different one in, all books on the first card are removed from the database and all books from the new card are added. That can take some time if the card has a lot of books. If the cards share contents, such as you copied the books from one card to another and added more books, it should treat it as the same card and only process the differences. But, I haven't tried this.

The above is based on experimentation with my Touch and Glo over all the different firmware versions. The above is what the current state seems to be. As the firmware is common between the devices, I expect the Aura HD to work in the same way.
Thanks for the warning. Looks like it might be better to stick to 32GB cards, along with not mixing manga and ebooks on the same card. Manga is bigger so 32GB (~30GiB formatted) would hold roughly 600 volumes (at an average of 50MiB/volume) so I'm thinking it wouldn't be too awful. How does thumbnail generation work? Does it do it when you insert a new card? Because I'm thinking that'll be the most CPU intensive/time consuming given manga tend not to have metadata thus, there's less data that needs to be processed compared to a normal epub ebook.

Meh, too much hassle. Part of the reason I prefer using microSD cards is so I don't have to connect my devices to the computer.

I hope they won't be too upset with the photos I've posted. If they were

Looks like Kobo has been slightly inaccurate with their weight specs once again. Two electronic scales agree that my Aura weighs 245g, not 240.

Me! And though I didn't order an Aura, I have a Mini now, and a Glo on the way!

I always thought Kobo's were too buggy! Until I started reading more about them here in MR!

An internal 4GB Sandisk SD-card. LOL. Then why have "internal" memory at al? Just position this slot at the edge and make it the primary one, requiring the user to put an SD-card in there to be able to use the device, just as you'd put a SIM-card into a telephone.

By doing it this way, they'd be able to sell the Aura in 2GB up to 32GB versions with almost negligile differences in cost to them. Maybe they should pull an Apple: €50 more for each higher version. After people discover that the "internal" memory is provided by an SD-card that just costs €5 and can be replaced if desired, they'd sure be upset... and feel set up too...

It appears to be a SanDisk class 4 4GB MicroSD. I have some Class 10
8GB MicroSD cards on the way from Newegg, one of them may be destined
to replace the 4GB, if I can follow the instructions to make the exchange.
I already made the image of the current memory.
