Kobo announced today that Best Buy will soon be carrying the 7″ Android tablet in stores. The Vox and the Kobo Touch were already available on the website. BB will carry all 4 colors in store (Hot Pink, Lime Green, Ice Blue and Jet Black), and the retail will still be $199.
This is good news. The Vox shipped at the end of October, and this is the very first North American retailer to carry it in store. (Actually, it’s the second, but Indigo doesn’t count.) Not having any displays in brick and mortar stores has probably hampered its success.
