I don't think that would be a reason to pull down the sight for them, IMO.

Perhaps the OP caught them working on the sight update and just caught it at the right time and it will be shown again once they are ready to sell it. I am just guessing, who really knows other than SONY <G>

Saw this on the newswire:

http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/st...4506956&EDATE=


The Valentine's Day edition of the Reader features a luxurious textured leather cover from Dooney & Bourke, as well as the standard cover and a cloth carry bag.
It is packaged in a limited edition red gift box with a foil stamp featuring both the Dooney & Bourke and Sony logos. The special version of the Reader comes complete with a $25 gift card, redeemable at Sony's CONNECT(R) eBook store for romance novels, new non-fiction, or any of the more than 11,000 titles the online service offers.
Quantities of the Valentine's Day edition of Sony Reader are limited and it will only be available for a short time -- Jan. 16 through Feb. 9 -- at Sony Style stores and online at http://www.sonystyle.com.

I had to go and look at this new DB reader. Actually I like the looks of the cover. Too bad they don't sell that seperate. OR maybe at some point in time DB will sell is seperately. Again, it might be more than I would want to pay seeings how this thing is already $150 over the other with no real change to the reader from what I can see.

Oh silly of me, that is what they are charging you for....... the cover. <sigh> Oh well I guess this cover won't be gracing my unit.

*Never judge a book by its cover, unless it's the PRS-500U2DB Dooney & Bourke limited edition Portable Reader with custom leather case ($149 value).*

I returned my old reader and bought this one today. I couldn't resist. I'll post pictures once I have it (wed-thurs).

Double post, ban! :P

Btw, when I returned my old reader, I returned it with the god damn SD card still in it. Not a big deal. I only put 512mb in....but still. Sucks.

bummer...... and if they resale it someone will probably have a set of books to go with it if Sony doesn't do an inspection. So you bought the expensive one?

Just recieved the reader. The case is gorgeous. Its extremely high quality and feels VERY durable. The cloth case is very nice to the touch, too. Well worth the extra 150.


Sorry for the relatively poor picture quality. Taken w/ my cell phone.

Oh I like the looks of that case. It would be nice if some companies out there would make something like this but maybe a little cheaper..... You and your camera did pretty good, thanks so much for sharing.

Oh and enjoy!

The refresh rate on this model seems MUCH faster. I don't know if I'm just imagining it, though O_O

Edit: nvm.

Is the cover properly aligned with the Reader? That seems to be a significant issues with the standard leather covers!

Can you check the firmware version? It's somewhere in the Settings menu.
