Walmart Edition Kobo Aura?

Walmart has $70 Kobo Auras back in stock again (after they were marked "on clearance" and disappeared for a while). They are now advertising an "Exclusive Walmart eBooks Edition." Does anyone know what this means? Are these somehow "locked" to Walmart? I wonder if the Clara (when/if it returns to Walmart) will also be an "Exclusive Walmart Edition?" Anyhow, just curious.

Just means they have the Walmart logo. Walmart does Not sell ebooks so they can not be lock to Only Walmart.

BTW You CAN Order the Clara: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Kobo-Clar...bled/848940265

You're probably right. It also allows them to sell the Aura for $70 instead of the $120 that Kobo still sells them for (why, I don't know). I also understand that Walmart doesn't sell eBooks, but they do have their own (Walmart eBook) "front-end" into Kobo's eBook store.

As for the Clara, I know you can still buy them on Walmart's site, but (right now) Triplenet Pricing is the seller, not Walmart. (Who is Triplenet anyhow, and how do they get Kobos to sell? — just asking myself.)

Ever occur to you that — just maybe — Walmart didn't have any up for sale when I looked at the page? That they might have just discovered ALL those two or three units they later found?

Sheesh... indeed!
