I hope it will be soon available in The Netherlands or Germany, so i can buy the Kobo Auro HD soon. From the UK it will take at least 4 weeks for deliverry. And i would rather have the european version. (I can't read italian or Frans). Anyone an idea when this will happen? Can't wait to own one.

Can we expect other covers besides the onyx Sleep Cover? Having only one option would somewhat sad and not as cool as three color choices for the reader itself, and even if some third parties jump in with covers of their own (which is not a given at this point, considering the Aura's “limited” nature), I don't expect them to make as good a job of fitting the reader's broken back.

Got one on launch day. Love the larger screen and clarity. The Porsche of eReaders should not be made of plastic though.

I've never bought an e-reader before but I really want a Kobo Aura HD in Ivory but shipping in the UK is at least 4 weeks. I go to Iceland for a month in June and desperately want an ivory Aura HD to take with me, please, please can you help???

Your readers are arriving way to fast yet they all have a quality which is intriguing to the readers need. I love the turning of pages (touch) and the light would be fabulous (glo) and now this one but my touch is so new, I will wait until my new replacement TOUCH getts close to maximum useage and I know then there will be a reader with most of the features I like.
