Kobo Mini discontinued?

Go to the "Devices" section of the UK Kobo Store and the Kobo Mini is listed - but click the [Buy Now] button and the site displays the message "Sorry, but this page isn’t available." Of the three retailers who were carrying the device in the UK (Argos, Staples, and W.H.Smith) all now report the Kobo Mini as unavailable or have removed it altogether.

It will be a great shame if the Kobo Mini has bitten the dust. I love my Mini, it's a nice little reader and the form factor is great for slipping into a jacket pocket.

At least there's one potential replacement - the PocketBook 515 Mini uses the same screen as the Kobo Mini but has a rather better spec. The link mentions a lack of Wi-Fi, but there is now a Wi-Fi enabled version too. Whether we will see the PocketBook make it to the West from its native Ukraine is another matter.

Turns out the PocketBook 515 Mini Wi-Fi is available via this Amazon Marketplace Dealer!

This is the Wi-Fi enabled version, available in white or grey for £68. Tempting...
