That was what you were hinting at Nate? Or were you just starting a countdown until your mother-in-law arrives?

Having shopped at Walmart in both countries, your assessment is accurate. Walmart Canada to me felt like a Target in the US. That is, a regular department/grocery store that both low and middle income people shop at. In the US most middle class people won't set foot in Walmart.

Bad idea if the rumored price is true. That's more than the Paperwhite and Nook cost. As a newcomer in the US market selling at a discount retailer, they need to be competitive on price. Otherwise people have no compelling reason to consider a Kobo over the much more popular Kindle.

The symbol ≠ means not equal. I'm saying that one can read a lot even if they're poor.

I also wish the price was more like $80, but the Kobo is still the only reader I would consider. I require Epub support, and the kepub features are nice. I also really like the hackability of the Kobo readers. I'm also not a fan of much of the Kindle design.

The Clara HD sleepcover has an interesting design. Here's another image of the Clara HD from a web shop in Sweden. 1299 SEK for the Clara HD and 299 SEK for its sleepcover.

Looks a bit odd. I like the previous design with the power button on the back more.

I'm warming up to the Clara after seeing those specs. The slim form factor and 166g weight are quite nice. If it had physical page turn buttons it would be perfect.

when the embargo expires, yes

BTW, someone asked about OverDrive. There's no mention of OD integration on the device, and the manual says that you need to use Adobe DE to transfer ebooks.

Could that sleepcover also explain why the power button in at the bottom of the device? For easy access from the little flap?
