Confused Kobo eReader for Android: Can you find & download it?

Have any of you fellow Samsung Moment owners located the new Koba eReader app in the Android Marketplace, and dowloaded it?

I can't find it in the marketplace. Not when I search for "Kobo," not when I search for "e-reader" or "ereader." And way too much comes up when I search for "e-book" or "ebook" (tons of individual ebooks come up).

Some other users of Android Forum have posted comments about the Kobo eReader, but I just can't seem to locate it.

Still have same question:

Same issue with the Kindle app for Android. Can't find it in the marketplace. Not even when I scan the bar code.

Have any of you Samsung Moment users found the Kobo or Kindle apps in the marketplace?

I downloaded the Kindle app today from the market. I just searched for Kindle and it was the 2nd or 3rd item. I believe it requires Android 1.6 or higher, so if you still have 1.5 that may be why you can't find it.

Thanks. That must be the issue: I've still got firmware version 1.5 -- unfortunately, I can't seem to update to 1.6 -- when I try, my phone says there's no update available.
