If they cut the price it will likely be as soon as they sell their current stock down close to sell out, provided the AT&T version is close to being in stock by then.

Does anyone have an ETA for the International DX? I'm holding off buying until it comes out.

Seems reasonable. Also I reckon there is going to be huge price cuts after Christmas.

I am a pessimist ) at the end of the next year. There are no other reader with such big screen for this price. We have only DX and more expensive iREX 1000

Soon. It's only a matter of time before the international version is released.

Count on it.

I think they should cut the price to $350 as soon as possible, or add tablet feature to it to keep the price.

This is one is right on the money -- but it also depends on the pricing and features of the Que. If the Que is competitive and well received, then the DX will be discounted heavily, but in case Plastic Logic goes for "business pricing" then Amazon will keep the price right where it is. Should the Irex DRG800 make a big splash, that may also influence Amazon's pricing, too. But since Irex is late to the party as usual and Irex's marketing stinks (maybe they are just short of funds), there is no reason to lower the price for the DX now.

I got an offer from Amazon for $40 off and a free year's subscription to the Washington Post. I thought the tie-in with the newspapers would be more lucrative so I am holding out.
