On the matter of e-ink readers, I have all the sympathy in the world for those who live outside the U.S., however, how could Sony take any other position on this point? Officially they never sold any PRS500 units outside the U.S.

Doing so would have evidently violated the distribution agreements they apparently had at the time (they didn't even get to Canada untill well after the 505 was out).

The extra-U.S. PRS500 units were out of bounds to begin with: third pary buys, no warranty ... not ideal perhaps, but that's the way it's been all along.
