Buying the Cybook retail in the USA

Me and some friends are going to spend 6 weeks in the USA and I'm hoping you can help me out with two things:

- which computer/gadget retail store chains are known to sell the Cybook?
- which are the most well known computer/gadget retail store chains in the USA? I already know about Best Buy, CompUSA, RadioShack and Fry's - I would like to check their online catalogues for some stuff my friends and I might be interested in buying

Sorry, no one sells the CyBook in any stores in the US.

Best Buy is the grand daddy. But, for popular tech gadgets Walmart and Target usually have them, sometimes at a better price. I don't think there are any CompUSA retail stores any more.

Thanks, I'll look for Sony Readers then.

Edit: What about Hanlin eReader V3 - is it available in the US?

Fry's Electronics offers the EZ-Reader (A Jinke V3 derivative). And, of course, you can buy the EZ-Reader and BeBook online.

Hey, thanks I can't really buy online since I'll be on the road most of the time.

Then I guess you'll have to do without any eBooks as you do have to buy them online.

But he doesn't need to be at a physical location for them to be delivered like he would a reading device.

But if "Mum" is in a fixed location, there's no reason to NOT order online and have it shipped directly TO Mum.

Furthermore, if you have any kind of schedule of travel, there's bound to be a time when you can predict you'll be in a certain location for a week or so. Just order the week prior and have it shipped to you care-of your hotel/motel/suite. This is done all the time.

Hey Marko,

Have you tried Books-On-Board. I think they sell the Cybook for 289USD:

http://www.booksonboard.com/index.ph...uct&PRODUCT=35

I imagine they would deliver it to an address in the USA if you have one you can use on your holiday.
