You have no idea if any of that is true. Also profit per item is not so important, it's item qty x net profit after all costs. Also no-one outside of Kobo knows the costs of each model.

Not in the real world. Not often.
Consumers can want a profitable product and a company kills it anyway. Seen it loads of times.

No. Politics or stupidity. Plenty of case studies on this.

You are making statements based on simplistic introductory texts and doctrine and also assuming companies are run rationally by people who understand what they doing.

None of what you write might be true. Decisions on which products to sell can be based on politics, a whim, mistaken analysis and many other factors.
