Streetlib leaked it (see my blog).

I'm guessing not the first week of August – at least not in stores (at least not stores in my area). We dropped by a Walmart yesterday and I checked the Electronics Department and saw no new floor plan changes and nothing yet in the book department with Kobo book displays. But I don't imagine it will take that long to clear a spot for both the books and devices.

Based on Wal-Mart's past performance with electronics, if they put Kobo ereaders on the shelf, and they don't sell fast enough, Wal-Mart will put them on discount. Keep your eyes open a few months from now and you might be able to grab a brand new Kobo at a bargain.

A new article published on August 1st states
Quote:
Walmart will start selling Kobo e-readers and e-books on August 21st.
However, that is only the title... When reading the article, it only mentions that

Quote:
We do know that the official launch of the digital bookstore on the Walmart website will be launched on August 21st.
It doesn't actually mention when Kobo eReader devices will be available in Walmart stores in the USA, aside from the title.

Oh, Good-E-Reader, I thought you had linked an actual news site. I think the folks got the 21st date off another forum, who's source was Streetlib. From the a link in the news forum ...

https://www.kboards.com/index.php/to...tml#msg3692066

Good-E-Reader's "news" came after it "broke" in this forum.

It looks like the 21st might be the date, but it might just be rumor. Of course, if you Good-E-Reader keeps predicting the date, sooner or later it might be right.

Me, too. I hope the 21st is the right date because that's not too far away.

I wouldn't expect hourly employees to know anything about when new merchandise is going to be offered.
