I got my black Kobo!

Today I went to the Indigo store in Brossard (south shore of Montreal), and they still had 6 black Kobo in the store. They had received 20 on friday. Ironically they didn't have any white ones!
I bought the black one for my wife as a Mother's Day present. My reader is a Kindle DX; it's a reader made for men .

Grey. You can see it on the Chapters home page.

Damn, and I wanted to get one, but I checked their online stock and it said 0 so I didn't bother going... We would have been 2 to post about getting a new Kobo reader from the same store today otherwise

I checked their website too and it said ZERO. But since I was in Brossard anyway, I said why not.

You should go tomorrow. They had five left after I bought mine. at 5:00PM

I like the way the black defines the screen more than the white.

In the end I went for it.
Just went to my local Chapter here in Kamloops and swapped my white Kobo for a black one.
I must admit I liked both. But my preferred color is black and this one also looks like a pendant for my black Thinkpad

You're always better to check in the store. I got mine in Saskatoon, and the website at the time said there were 7 in stock, but when I went in to the store, there were 3. The website numbers aren't very reliable.
