OK. Why do we see so many deals for the Sony PRS-500 popping up around the web ? Must be an explanation...

I am amazed how many are sold within just a few minutes/hours. Make this the suggested retail price, and e-books are going to fly!

That's what I'm secretly hoping: that Sony is testing the market for a reader between 99-199$.

Except that right now people know they can resell them for more, because the regular market price is so high. Hopefully Sony is taking that into account (though I still think they'd sell pretty well at $100 ea.)

Rats missed it again

This is insane. Don't Sony have a marketing department to set the price or something??? Sell it cheap like the Wii, Sony.

I'm more surprised that NBC, a broadcasting company, has its own shopping website...

I would guess that it's the web site for some kind of "TV Shopping channel"? We have a number of them in this country.

Intriguing indeed. Usually it's a sign for 'end of line' productions.

ShopNBC is NBC's version of QVC. The low price might also have been that they bought a quantity for resale, did not have enough takers when it aired, and then liquidated their remainder. edit to add: Since the quantity listed above was 700, I'd place a smart bet that they bought a quantity of 1,000, sold 300 of them at $299 on air and that the $149 was their liquidation price.

The price at the link is back to $299 now, and the status is still "unavailable."
