Do the prices you mention include VAT or sales tax? In Europe prices normally include VAT.
For a 6" E-reader, including touchscreen and wi-fi, in Europe the price seem fair enough - perhaps even a bargain.
If I understand the site correct the price include VAT and shipping at the current price of €235.
Compared to a similar device, Bebook Neo, bought at Bebooks own site, the price is €299 plus VAT and shipping. Shipping within Europe is probably something like €10 to €15 and VAT somewhere around 17-19% on top of the listed sales price.
I am not entirely convinced that the screen glare is within tolerable levels, but if I didn't already have an Onyx Boox I would at least consider the Pocketbook 302 as a fairly good alternative.
