Sony Reader at Amazon

Amazon is selling Sony Reader and calling it an LCD:
"E-reader 6IN LCD Portable Dark Blue E-book Approx 170 Pix/inch"

They don't specify if it is a 500 or 505.

Where's the Kindle?

I don't think you really just what a significant discovery you've made. It's a 505, it's in stock, and it's available for international sale.

You've just made a lot of people very happy - well done!

They have both the blue and the silver models available.

<Sigh>

Just tried to order one and got the message "this item cannot be shipped to international addresses".

Oh well, you had me excited for a minute or two at least

Congrats to our overseas friends!

Is this a direct Amazon sale or a Z-shop? I'm betting the latter...

... but only, it seems, if you live in the US. I've sent an e-mail to customer service to ask them what the problem is.

Sorry if I caused an momentary international flurry. My point was they had no recognition of E-Ink.

They use the word "LCD" in the product title, but correctly call it "eInk" in the description that follows.

Just had a reply from Amazon - at least they answer their e-mail quickly!

jewelry, sporting goods, shoes, consumer electronics and kitchen
items to some destinations; for more information, visit this page:
