Those aspiring to own a brand new Kobo e-reader are in for some good news. The popular e-book reader can now be picked up from any of the 146 Future Shop stores spread throughout Canada. In fact, Future Shop is the largest retailer and e-tailer of consumer electronic goods and the home grown Kobo e-reader will get to enjoy tremendous market penetration now that it is listed on their product list. With this, Future Shop will join other retailers like Best Buy Canada and Indigo Books and Music, all offering the Kobo e-reader.
The excitement shows in the words of the CEO of Kobo, Michael Serbinis, who has this to say of the latest development: “It’s awesome that Future Shop is making our Kobo Wireless eReader available to their Canadian customers,” before also adding, “Many Canadians count on Future Shop’s Product Experts when considering a technology purchase and we’re thrilled they can now visit Future Shop to learn, purchase and discover the joy of eReading with Kobo.”
Future Shop too is as excited to provide a product such as the Kobo e-reader, as is evident in what the Director of Portable Electronics at Future Shop, Sam Vanderveer, has to say of their latest business venture: “Future Shop is delighted to meet the growing customer demand to purchase the Kobo eReader in-store or online… We pride ourselves on delivering outstanding products to our customers and the stylized Kobo eReader stands out in category offering exceptional value and incredible eReading experience.”
Future Shop is offering the Kobo e-reader at a price of just $149 with three attractive the color options Onyx, Pearlized Lilac, and Metallic Silver. Then the Future Shop’s “Lowest Price Guarantee” is also equally applicable to the Kobo e-reader so that anyone who can claim that the Kobo is sold by any other retailer based in Canada at a price lower than that of the Future Shop will be entitled to a 10 percent price advantage. However, at this price, the Kobo is already at a price advantage as the 5 inch Aluratek Libre and the Skytex Primer e-reader/tablet device cost less than the Kobo. Its nearest e-reader of repute, the Sony PRS350 with a 5 inch display costs $30 more.
With the Kobo e-book reader, one will also have access to over 2.2 million e-books, newspapers, and magazines along with free, unlimited access to Bell’s Wi-Fi network. Combine this with the Kobo attributes of a 6 inch e-ink display, compact portable dimensions, superior battery life, and what you have is the best device for anytime and anywhere reading.
The Kobo can also be picked up from Future Shop’s official site www.futureshop.ca
