Kobo's adding audiobooks

It seems that Kobo is going to start adding audio books - or perhaps already has?

Below the first pic is of a new format box, and the second pic is of an audiobook. Note that there's nothing against the you can read this on heading. Which is right as it's an audio book.

Kobo explained this away as a technical glitch, but they haven't actually denied the implications:

Thanks for following that up with Kobo Nate.

Fairly curious, because it wasn't an error ... the new 'Media Type' box, which is still showing, attests to that - the media type is either an ebook or ?

(The Media type box is in the first pic in the OP)
