Kobo hasn't released any details on when their retail partners in the US, NZ, Australia, or elsewhere will get the ereaders (though I am told Fnac has them in stock). Nor has Kobo said when we will be able to order the ereader via their website.
Can you believe they're not even available on Kobo's own website? Sure, they're listed, but the website still says "coming soon". And that, my dears, is a sign that something, somehow, got screwed up.
I have reached out to Cerys Goodall of Kobo for an update on when US buyers will have a chance to get the Kobo Glo and Kobo Mini. If she replies (LOL) I will update this post.
So, do you think they are having supply issues or distribution issues?
