The Kobo Aura One e-Reader is experiencing shortages in Canada. There are many Chapters/Indigo locations in Canada that do not have any in stock and the main Kobo website is showing complete unavailability until September 23rd.
“The Kobo Aura ONE has clearly tapped into a pent-up demand for advanced features no other device on the market offers,” said Michael Tamblyn, CEO, Rakuten Kobo. “When we created Kobo Aura ONE, we knew that a subset of our most passionate readers would be interested in a premium device with improved waterproofing, a bigger screen, and a blue-light reducing technology. However, it’s safe to say that the enthusiasm we are seeing for Aura ONE has happily surpassed expectations.”
Kobo Aura ONE will also be available at Best Buy beginning September 30th in Canada.
