Question When is the new HD Kobo Arc due out?

Anyone have any idea when the new model of Kobo - the HD - is due out?? When it was announced earlier this year, the suggestion was that it would be out on October 16 - ie yesterday - but that day has obviously been and gone now with no news or date that I am aware of .
I am thinking specifically of the 7" model and the UK but I'll take any scraps of info
I was surprised to find almost no reference to the new model on here - you're normally a pretty well-informed bunch

The Chapters store I dropped by at lunch today put them on display today. None of the staff seemed very familiar with them but that's more or less the usual.

Admittedly, since I'm in Vancouver, British Columbia, that information is not all the useful to someone living in the UK.

Regards,
David

Oh really? That's interesting. Perhaps they're Canada only at the moment - even the US Kobo website is still showing them as "coming soon". I'm hoping Sharkus or one of the other Kobo reps on here will weigh in with some solid info :]

Yesterday the Canadian customers of Chapters-Indigo got an email announcing the new Kobo Arc 7 HD ($199) and Kobo Arc 7 ($149), to be available in stores and online for pre-order today.

In stores but still pre-order online? Odd mix. Perhaps it will appear over here soon

Hi,

I've been chasing WHSmith about this and finally got a (relevant) reply today.

The official release date of the Kobo Arc 7 HD is Friday 1st November 2013.

Just bought myself the arc 10hd very nice it is to. still getting the hang of it, although one problem seems apparent every time i load books the covers and then the books start to disappear from the kobo collection i make ?. been in touch with kobo who with great wisdom told me to reboot the tablet to see if that helps which it did not i fear it is something to do with the books not being bought from kobo.

one other thing beware the postage if you want to buy the sleep cover from kobo site it was nearly £30 just for postage
