We are slightly perplexed, as it was assumed that the Kobo Glo HD would already be available to buy from the e-reader maker’s online store, yet there is still no buy-it-now option. Its release date was said to be from the 1st of May, yet that date has come and gone. If there was some sort of delay, they have yet to tell us about it.
It is worth noting that the Kobo Glo HD e-reader was to be released in the US first this month, and then in the UK on June 1st. Kobo has yet to make any sort of statement, and so we presume it will become available very soon.
With this in mind, those wishing to purchase one of these new e-readers will also want to protect it, and the official option would be to go for the Kobo Glo HD Sleepcover, which comes in two color options, black and what looks to be cream. Sadly, we do not have a price as yet.
The Kobo SleepCover is perfect for protecting your Glo HD and will automatically turn itself either on or off when you open and close the cover. The design is both thin, and lightweight, as to not add any extra bulk.
We can understand that many of you will be looking for third-party Kobo Glo HD cases, although we have yet to see any of them appear. Having said that, there is a chance that some Kobo Aura could will be ideal.
