I noticed that. I don't know if they did that on purpose or weren't being careful.

Walmart (U.S.) already has the Nia listed (for "preorder") but, at the time of writing this, you can't actually preorder. At this point the price is $100, but I'm guessing it will be on sale sooner or later.

It's now up on Kobo's UK site for pre-order. Now that it's been announced properly, I've made a new Kobo Nia thread for the MobileRead frontpage.


It is the "Kobo Nia" although the logo is in lower case.


I suggest comments on the actual announced product should go in the new thread

I didn't want to put this thread on the front page because of the vast number of speculative comments before the actual announcement.

And that is because it was announced at 1 minute past midnight on Wednesday.

I just realized the Aura 2 had an infrared touch screen where the Nia has a capacitive touch screen. I guess that's better or worse depending on your viewpoint.
The Aura 2, which the Nia is replacing, also had "comfort light". That was not a color-changing frontlight (I double checked).

Yes. The official announcement was scheduled for 1 minute after midnight.
