Here's a link to their video about the Kobo Mini 2:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxmFHKQkiy0

He makes it sound like a wild guess that's valid because he's "the undisputed king of ereaders", and that really is a quote from the video.

Actually that's probably true. He can claim to be the undisputed king because he's the only one vain enough to claim that title.

The King told me via facebook chat that he knows I am a poster here. Creeped me out. My real name is not used anywhere here. So how would he know? Don't like being internet stalked by a stranger. I still like their website I am just a little freaked out on this

Probably. I read the article on the gold oasis and I noticed some wording matched another article a little. I still like their website. Easier to find the info

It sounds like that your iBooks somehow became your default app for pdfs. Not sure how to change that in iOS though.

Not soon, apparently.
Going on six months and this is what searching for "ebook" pops up:

https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=ebook&cat_id=0

Fancy an RCA Voyager?

Searching for "ebook reader" returns a listing headed by... Kindle Paperwhite.

https://www.walmart.com/search/?meth...hProductResult

Don't know about other places but the WalMarts near me don't carry Kobo either. Lots of cheap tablets, though.

Some announcements carry more weight and commitment than others.
Some "strategic alliances" mean: "We'll put a standard kiosk in all stores and heavily promote you", some mean "We'll run a two week promo sale", and some just mean " we'll add you to the list of approved sources store managers can order from. If they see the need."

Mileage varies.

I'm guessing either for "back to school" sales, or for Christmas.

Apparently, only independent book stores currently sell Kobo ereaders in brick and mortar stores in the US. The following is from the ABA website.

Quote:
ABA members interested in carrying eReaders may order any number of units of current models directly from Kobo. Orders must be placed through the Kobo corporate site. To purchase, email Natalie Jefferson at Kobo with the store name, city and state, and the name and email address of the person authorized to purchase devices and accessories; Natalie will send further instructions for accessing the corporate site. Only one email per store will be authorized. (Please contact Kobo directly for all eReader inquiries, including customer service on existing models.)

Customer Care Phone Number: 1-800-368-5390

Well, early "back to school" sales have started and still no rumor about Kobos in Walmarts (or online). Christmas?
