Just bought Cybook Gen3 (EB600)!

Well, I figured the 15% reduction in price yesterday was an omen that I ought to go ahead and buy it! I'm still not exactly certain what model it is, but the box states 400 MHz, 1GB, 8 greyscale levels and the Adobe+ePub DRM support - so I'm content. Plus, it came with a *2-year* in-store warranty so I don't have to mail it anywhere if it breaks. The final price (including VAT) was 219 euros - which is very good for Greece where most electronics are 20% higher price than everywhere else and are available 1-year later!

The only thing it doesn't have is a protective case. This is not such a big deal since I do not plan on travelling with it. I have the 5" jetBook for travelling. I can't wait to compare the reading experience!

Now it's charging and I'll play with it later this evening. I appreciate all the great info on MobileRead forum that helped me make an informed decision. I think the store clerks were quite surprised that I knew so much about the device (they had no idea...even as to the price reduction which was on their website but not listed in the store!).
