I got a quick question, does this work with .pdf files as well?

OOS

Every branch of WHS in the country is advertising these. Are you sure they are OOS?

yes it does

I can't seem to get it to add to the basket. The lilac one is still showing in stock but when I press add to basket northing happens. Is anyone else having this problem? I really want one as my Kindle has died and I'm having to read my ebooks on my laptop.

Where does everyone get their ebooks from? Be it payed or free (illegal/legal)?
As the kobo store seems quite expensive/scarce compared to Amazon a lot of the time!

What are these like for displaying pictures ie diagrams in textbooks?

Can these be used with caliber for converting PDF I already have

Cheers

I've just tried and am getting the same problem now. I think their site malfunctioning at the moment. Phone your local store tomorrow, as they should be getting more stock in.

I think all colours are now out of stock. I tried adding it to my wish list so I could order it from there and it says out of stock from the wishlist. I should checked HUKD earlier. I could kick myself that it's run out. I don't care what colour the cover is, I just wanted one. It's good news for the lucky people who did get it at that price though.

Use this link for the mini one I posted earlier. It's smaller than this one but it is still great value.

I've just checked and the mini one is available but I'd prefer the larger size. However I am going to have a think about it. I know I could miss out on the mini but that will fate and I'll just have to hope the larger ones become available again.

Black and Lilac still available, just had a look.

Just need to search the name of the book with ePub at the end, usually something pops up that's downloadable (might need to get it as torrent first and then extract, for some). As for the legal side...

Back in stock as at 1700hrs 09/01/2014. Cover colours available are black, blue and lilac.

Thanks for the update, I have requested for this to be un-expired.

I've ordered one and I'd love to find a cover, preferably with a light in it, so if anyone sees any deals can they post it. I don't want to pay the same price for the cover as for Kobo!

Mods - can you please activate this deal again?

Thanks. Ordered one for my Dad.

They are around £70 at Argos so this seems a great price, now do i need one?

Orderd...... Hot

Ordered 2 ...Many Thanks

Many thanks OP

Just ordered a black Kobo Touch! Was signed up to get an email if they came back into stock but HUKD got there before WHSmith had chance!

Thanks, ordered one in black - 50p cashback from Quidco.

thanks for the info I'll add it to the post

What are the quilted backs like? Look odd in the pics.

Nice in the hand - they're tactile and don't slip easily.

I love Kobo e-readers - had 3 now and their software/format support is excellent.

PS4 has better graphics. Cold.

Ordered one, its handy for course books etc and much more pleasant than reading from even the iPad air. Rude not to at this price.

Ordered mine hours ago.. not had any emails about it though.. Has anyone else?

Quite nice, I don't really notice too much difference though. They pick up dirt a bit quicker but thats solved with a cheap cover off ebay.

Tempted...had the white one last year but was disappointed by the dictionary and the illusion that the screen is too dark because of the white bezel.
you can put android on it watch

Thanks OP just landed a blue one!!

this is hardly news, they're almost always £29 at asda/whsmith/argos.

they are smaller screened (only about an inch, but you really notice it) and a lot slower than my kindle3g and the battery life is nowhere near as good e.g. completely dead after a couple of weeks of not even being used, vs 4-6 weeks of daily use on the kindle. plus you don't get amazon, you get kobo store (not sure if b&n works, the nook uses epub....)

the only good point is its half the price of a kindle and small enough to stick in your pocket.

it works with calibre btw.

No email confirmation, site shows "ordered" and Paypal have not asked bank for payment.

Edited by: "gerrykiddy" 13th Jan 2014

As stated shown as ordered but no contact from W H Smith. I would like to contact them to check but not a menu option. If you try to cancel you must view the order and if you can see "Modify/change my order" then you could do it there. If its not there its because its too late!!. So no confirmation/no delivery details/no money taken but too late to cancel. However although the money has not been taken from the account, it is shown as pending so they havn't got it and I cant use it. Not exactly an internet savvy company.

ordered the mini a week ago and just had email to say they cant fulfill my order :-(
