There is an exception for the pocketbooks sold in Italy, as they are linked to the IBS (internet bookshop) store

The Basic at €75 compares ok with Kindle at €79, and the - only thing, if you don't go through Italy, probably delivery costs make it nor worth it! In my case, I wish I had know earlier, it would have saved me quite a sum
