Sony PRS-505 is available new between 180-200.
PRO's: Great basic device, good screen/battery life
CON's: Can't handle large collections easily, slow refresh, no internet.

COOL-ER Reader - Coming soon
BeBook Mini (5" screen) - Coming Soon
BeBook2 (6" screen, 3g, touch) - Coming Soon

Does that cover everything new available direct from the UK right now? and does anyone have any anticipated release dates/price points for the coming soon's.

The BeBook and CyBook should be available too (at least by way of internet orders).

I've heard a date of August for the Mini (way too late, I want it now!)
The BeBook2: after the summer (which can be from september till the sun blows up)
The Txtr also this fall (it being a European product, I assume it'll also be available in the UK)
