Agreed - it is not looking like things will be getting any better too soon.
With that in mind, I jumped on the 'deal' at ncix.com at the last second. While it still shows the same price at Dell, (279.99 - thanks for pointing that out Shiren - it still shows no stock), it was in stock at ncix and I had a deal for free shipping. GST was applied, no PST (different province) - don't know what's applicable with Sonystyle.ca and Dell.ca.
It's unusual to see an electronic device that costs more now than it did when introduced a year previous (in Canada) and with a new model released in between. This particular market is moving quite slowly compared to other electronics. Unless you're really patient, it may not be worth waiting for better prices/newer models.
That being said, I'll be happy to finally have an e-ink device (should see it in a day or two).
Edit: ...and I still have yet to see a blue one available anywhere in Canucksville
