I found this website a few days ago when I was looking for how to get the Sony reader in Europe. Your posts are really helpful, thanks!
However, I've also discovered the Iliad now and I'm tempted to get it instead of the Sony Reader.
You mentioned before that they are different and not competitors.
What is so different about them (apart from battery life and the possibility to write in one)? Do the extras the Iliad has justify the price?
