The Kobo Aura One is out of stock at kobobooks.com until next year, but you can order it from the Indigo in Canada. Since indigo lists its prices in Canadian dollars, you end up getting the Aura One for less than the retail price after currency conversion.

Price: $249 CAD
Shipping & Handling: $16.27 CAD (this is to NM; price varies by a dollar or two depending on your zip)
Total: $266.26 CAD
Total: ~$200 USD (current exchange rate is about $1 CAD to $0.75 USD)

Normal price is $230 USD when in stock. If you buy it today, it says you get a guaranteed delivery of December 23 or earlier.

Be sure to use a credit card with no foreign transaction fee.

This is a new eReader from Kobo, released in September. Here are some features it has that no* other eReaders have:

  • Waterproof design (IPX8 rating) - read at the beach or in the bath
  • ComfortLight PRO - white balance adjustment, so that reading in the dark shows far less blue light
  • Large 7.8 inch, 300 PPI e-ink screen
  • Native OverDrive support - check out ebooks from your library right from your Kobo, no computer needed

Ok, there are a couple eReaders that have waterproofing

Warranty Note: Since you're buying from a Canadian store, the warranty is annoying. You still get a one year warranty, but you must ship it to Canada for any repairs or replacements.

If you wanted to get this for a Christmas gift for someone, this is a great alternative to eBay

AFAIK this is the only ereader on the market that allows you to check out ebooks from your library - using OverDrive - straight from the device.
