Jaapjan, this question came also up and according to the Sony rep, expansion outside North America is something they are looking into, but it's currently not feasible due to the complicated licensing schemes they have with their publisher partners. In other words, and this is only my interpretation, Sony would only want to sell the Reader outside the States if they were also able to directly sell e-books along with it.
