New Kobo Mini (sealed retail) with OEM SleepCover

These have been sold on Shop Goodwill in the past. This one is London, ONT, Canada, so the shipping should be cheaper for Canadian bidders (about $20 if shipped to Idaho). It's an auction and there's six days left. Just thought if someone was looking for a new Kobo Mini they might want to know about this one. I have no idea how well the battery lasted during its long storage. I'm guessing the Mini won't go cheap.

Current bid is only $9!

The screen is old-tech, it's slow, there's no light....

But still, I LOVE my Mini. I would buy an updated version in a heartbeat. Put a Clara-style screen and current software in a Mini-sized package? What's not to love?

There’s no point in bidding until the last minute. Early bids just push up the price because bidders can be irrational and smart bidders know that.

You can't do anything about the screen, but the Mini does use the current software (at least I assume it does, I'm using 4.19.xx on my Mini, which is pretty close to current). I can sync to Kobo and buy from the Kobo Store and read Overdrive books checked out on my Aura Edition 2.

The main reason I would bid for this bundle is for the OEM sleep cover. (Don't worry, I'm not bidding. I need to be selling, not buying.)

IMO, the OEM sleep cover for the Mini is so bulky it obviates the point of the Mini. In comparison to the Glo HD in its OEM cover, the Mini is fatter, as wide, and only slightly shorter.

I just assumed it would be smaller than the chunky case I found for my Mini (Navitech). You make me feel a little better about never finding one of these OEM cases.

Do you know if there is (or was) a nice case for the Mini – or did most people just use them case-less?

It would cost almost $19 for shipping and handling to New England. So that has o be added on top of the cost.

Yes 4.20.14622 does work on the Mini.
