Someone at MobileRead noticed a reference to a device called the Kobo Aura H2O Edition 2 in the code for the latest Kobo software update.

Kobo Aura One Back In Stock, But for How Long?

The Kobo Aura One is back in stock again from Kobo’s website. The US store, UK store, and Canadian store all show a limited quantity back in stock. It remains to be seen how long the “limited quantity” will last. Hopefully they have enough to stay in stock for longer than a day or two […]

Kobo Aura One Covers and Cases List

So far Kobo has kind of dropped the ball on the release of their 7.8-inch Kobo Aura One ebook reader. It’s been out of stock from Kobo’s website for several months now, pretty much since it was released in September (yet it’s been selling from Chapters.Indigo most of that time).

Kobo Glo HD Still Available for Cheap

When Kobo unexpectedly discontinued the Kobo Glo HD last fall after releasing the Kobo Aura Edition 2, it appeared that the Glo HD’s cycle had come to an end, especially after Kobo removed it from their website and stopped selling it several months ago. But the Kobo Glo HD isn’t totally gone just yet. There […]
