I don't have an eReader yet. I've been waiting a long time to get one, and this new Sony is looking like what I've been waiting for. I'd really like to get one as soon as they ship, but I'm probably going to wait for at least the first wave of user reviews before I order, just to make sure.

And enjoy the party atmosphere, or your picture in the world's newspapers - but, sorry, I am totally at a loss to see the excitement about pre-ordering.

Aside from harbouring a [surprisingly well proven] vague conviction that I'll let others "iron out the bumps" , and sort out the glitches, in something new, I am never really seized by the neccessity to give any business their first quarter's sales figures on a plate, through my commitment to buy their product, especially sight unseen.
If there was a "plus/bonus" aspect re: price or extras, or perhaps availability, it helps to explain it, but I'm still struggling with the concept......

Mind you, it is a well trodden commercial path - get the committment, ideally the cash, up front so you can factor in how many to make/knit/paint.....

On the other hand, if you can't walk into a shop and buy one, 'cos they haven't got any, I suppose things are a trifle tricky, really.

Probably the same reason why people want to buy and read a book the day of release.

Yes, but the post I was referring to asked why different prices in different countries.
