You're right, if you consider it from an American point of view, not from a European one. Consider that:

- they will be sold in Europe only;

- Nook is not sold in Europe;

- If you buy Kindle from Europe you have to pay expensive shipping costs + import taxes which amount to 25%;

- Sony PRS600 costs 299 euros and PRS300 is 199 euros. Plus, believe it or not, Sony does not sell directly ereaders in many European countries (Italy and Spain, for example). If you consider that 1 euro = 1,33 dollar...
