If the price is 165, then it most certainly won't be over $200. Remember, all Dutch shops (unless specifically geared towards companies) have the VAT included in the price. And, as Harry already mentioned, that's 19%. And als Pietvo also already mentioned, it usually is about 1 = $1.

Other than that, it looks like really nice
No. But bol.com has a specific mobile site for ebook readers. So, you can go there easily from your reader.

It's attractive compared to the 199 of the PRS-650, but it is competitive against the 111 of the WiFi Kindle?
Comparison: the K3, if I were to order that, would be 135. So, 165 isn't so bad a price.
