Just to advise that we Kiwi's cannot buy an Aura online through the Kobo website if you're in NZ. The pricing etc is all shown properly but when it comes to filling in the details of the payment there's only Australia as a country we can pick from.

Contacting their support desk, they advise to buy it through a bricks and mortar retailer (Whitcoulls) as they don't ship internationally! Noel Leemings don't stock it and its a special order only.

I'm waiting to see if Whitcoulls actually have any stock, their website is a bit cranky and only shows the coffee coloured ones which I don't want.


Edit: Oh, and I also bought a Kindle through Geekzone for the wife!

Whitcoulls and Paper Plus are the NZ retailers. You'd be better off contacting your local bricks and mortar store to see if they have any in stock. Alternatively, use the NZ Post YouShop service and buy one from through that address.
