Has the Kobo Aura HD Espresso sleep cover even been produced yet?

The only evidence I've found of this colour of sleep cover even existing is a tiny blurb in the description for the black(onyx) model.

See here: http://www.kobo.com/accessories/kobo-aurahd-sleepcover.html

"available in Onyx and Espresso"

Does anyone own one of these? Have they even released this colour yet? Or is it just place-holder text for when they actually start selling them?

I've only found listings for black ones on resale sites.

Cheers

Edit: I just found some for sale at "Staples" in Canada, but nowhere else.

They were available to purchase on Kobo's website the day the Aura was first available. By the end of the second day I noticed they were out of stock.

It was available at WHSmith, but I can't check if that's still the case. It's also available in Belgium. Maybe it will be in stock in the USA soon

Staples in Canada does not have these in stock, despite their website saying so. They actually order them directly from Kobo and neither Kobo or Chapters have them in stock.
My order for the Espresso cover from Staples is over a month old and still hasn't shipped.

Why are these sleepcases for the Aura so greedily expensive?????

Simply, because they can.

Because the companies making the cheaper covers for the Paperwhite and Glo are not offering them for the Aura. If they were available, in lovely colours, I would buy an Aura.

That's not true

I have this cover, it's cheap, comes in many colours and does a sleep function too

That's not the same ultra slim cover, it is far too bulky for my taste. This is the version I mean, although it is for the Glo not the Aura.
