The Kobo Touch e-reader, the first touchscreen model from Kobo, is now available at Chapters/Indigo stores in Canada. The new device is selling for $139 and features WIFI to connect to the Kobo book store. This device has a IR touchscreen interface for easier interaction and has a 6 inch screen. Right now it only seems like most stores received the black model and sources at the company said within a week or two they should have the other colors in. If you live outside of Canada and want to get access to this new device right away you can order it from our sister site Shop e-Readers.
