So I went to plan B and had my girlfriend make the order (she is from the US).
How do you have time to have a girlfriend, read, do MobileRead, and etc.

hahahah.

Any one thought about a 'fake reader' ?

Kidding!

Keep in mind that 7/4 is a holiday in the US and almost all banks are closed. You may have to wait until tomorrow before you see that the payment is sent.


I'm sure glad I ordered one of these last night. You guys are fast!

Sweet, this is friggin awesome!!! At this price, I couldn't resist picking up one for my wife to enjoy. To make the pot even sweeter, I still hadn't used my other Sony card the first time, so I'll be getting a $100 off my first purchase! So, you know what that means... Sony just bought me a free Reader (minus the $9 for shipping). Can't beat that, now to figure out what I'd like to pick up from the Connect store with my $50 credit...

Thanks for the info, I just hope Tiger doesn't slump on the deal. Here's to hoping it leaves the warehouse before they change their minds.

Awesome find, I actually read the repost of this topic before I got to this one (I read posts in reverse, in case I run out of time the newer stuff will still pull up, hopefully, within the past 24-hours). I'm willing to take my chances, not like there is anything to lose. We've dealt with TD quite often at my last job, they're no fly-by-night shop and tend to have pretty good service (especially if you have a corporate account manager).

I wish they could keep the Sony PRS-500 at this price: they would sell thousands of them at this price, and the market for e-books would explode (the number of registered members on Mobileread too ;-) ).

Dudes!!

I'm totally Pouncing right now!

Does this mean Sony has 6 Jillion readers that aren't selling and are starting to cut their losses?

If they would just ADVERTISE even a little people would buy these things. I'm always getting people asking me, then wanting one.

All it would take is Paris Hilton Staring vacantly at a reader on TV and going... "I loooouuuve it!"

Paris Hilton...

- staring vacantly? - YES
- on TV - YES
- going ""I loooouuuve it!" - Three words? Only if someone would get her voice dubbed.
