Found 27th Jan 2016
Been looking at this over the last couple of days and today it has dropped in price at both Argos and JL from £109.99 to £89.99 plus FREE £5 voucher at Argos starting today. Offered free delivery too.

Obviously no £5 voucher at JL but 2 year guarantee instead.

V good price for kobo's current premier ereader. Shame they didn't include a micro sd slot. I still like the flush face of my aura though. Please don't be put off by the two ridiculous reviews on kobo's website complaining about the erader because it doesn't include a sudoku game. honestly.

I was considering going all out for the Kindle Voyage but £89.99 compared to £169.99 (plus ads) and the fact you can't use Kindles to borrow library books or use EPUBS was a no brainier in the end.

If i didn't have an aura already i would buy this. Amazon are starting to get gimmicky with their ereaders the voyage is definitely not worth that. I just wish kobo would step up and create a model that handled audiobooks as well. Enjoy it and if you don't already, check the kobo discount codes section of Mobileread.

The Kobo Glo HD has a hidden MicroSD card slot, if you use a pry tool you can access it, and clone the OS to a bigger card (guide in the second link below) if you want more storage space.

I noticed this just before I posted this deal. Do you know if it would void your warranty?

The answer is yes it would. And its not really hidden just not accessible its attached to the motherboard where it should be. Its been known about since the first teardown ages ago. You can always pop in a bigger card but you shouldn't really have to micro sd cards are so cheap kobo and amazon should really step up and stop being so stingy.
