Just got the email. I requested shipping to my closest Chapters store.

YAY!

Anyone know if Chapters will be carrying them this weekend - or at least have them on display? I was planning to go take a look and maybe buy one.

They are supposed to receive them on Friday (and sell them to customers). When I went to the store to order mine, they said on Friday they would have demo models set up to try out ...

I also called a local chapters today and said they are expecting to have them Friday for both sale and demoing.

well i'm super excited to see reviews of the Vox. I wasn't a fan of the Nook Color because I thought it very heavy compared to my Sony PRS-505, but now that I've shifted my viewpoint and look at these more as internet browsers, tablets, readers for colorful books/magazines/PDFs, I'm starting to want one. Of course, I also want to upgrade my 505 for a current-gen E-Ink reader so I'm not sure what I'll go for first.. but I'm looking forward to reviews. Especially curious about the screen quality on the Vox.

I am hoping Future Shop has them this Friday as well. If so, I will pick one up there. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Chapters will let you return the Vox once you have opened the box. Future Shop is great this way - you have 2 weeks to return it for a full refund, no questions asked.

I can confirm this. Which is why I'm going on Friday to check out the Demo model, even though I've ordered one. If I don't like the demo (or if it feels cheap, like I found the regular Kobo models) I will cancel and get refunded my Vox payment.

Yes, Chapters told me at the time if you open the box, you cannot return it! Sounds very fishy to me ...

Chapters does not sell open box/refurbs. Canadian law does not allow a return that has been opened to be sold as new. That may be the rub.

Yeah - BUT, if you bought your Vox at Chapters and something goes wrong within your one year warranty, they will usually swap your broken/defective unit for a brand new one - rather than have you ship it back to Kobo in Toronto.

So...makes sense to me to go look at the demo in Chapters, and if you like it, buy it from them. You're going to get 100 times better customer service from Chapters than you'll ever get from Future Shop because Chapters (Indigo) is a major shareholder of Kobo - don't you think?
