On Monday we started shipping the first Kobo Wireless eReaders to customers who pre-ordered the device in Canada, and starting next week it will be available for purchase at Borders and one of the largest discount department stores in the U.S. – Walmart!
Building on our relationship with Walmart Canada, Kobo’s Wireless eReader will be available in 2500 US Walmart stores across the country starting next week.
Basically, this time next week Kobo will be perpetuating their crime against digital publishing by offering the Kobo Wifi through Walmart. I wonder why they hate their customers so? No, seriously. Why else would they inflict that antique hardware and horrible ebook formatting on an unsuspecting public?
