Pamela Gadsden has posted NAEB's price of the Cybook Gen3 OEM device @ Baen's Bar:
Quote:
The reader with its' own battery + 1 USB cable + 1 USB AC charge device + 1 cover + 1 SD card 1 GB + earphones.

$375 USD
plus shipping and handling (S&H) and tax where applicable
The statement is also at naebllc.com.

This is basically the Cybook Deluxe edition, at a $75 saving. Pamela also says:

If you're in the euro zone order the reader direct from Bookeen.
I'm ready to send in my money.

Getting the bank account for that even as we speak. Should be able to receive those funds by middle of next week.

And it's not *exactly* the same as the Deluxe package as ours does not come with the *EXTRA* battery pack.

Another very trivial difference is that the standard Bookeen package comes with a 2GB SD card rather than 1GB.

Now if someone would just do a comparison to the 505 to help me decide...I think its coming down to font control vs battery life

Battery life? Both machines have amazingly good battery life - worry about other things if you want, but battery life is a complete "non issue".

Sorry, I meant with the standard "Deluxe" package that Bookeen supply, as opposed to the custom NAEB package. The word "standard" was confusing, I apologise.

Identical screen, but different controller. The 505 can display 8 grey-scales, the Gen3 only 4. Probably completely irrevelent in normal use except, perhaps, if you're a "mango" fan (is that the right word?).

The 505 and Gen3 are both using the 6" Vizplex screen. The only difference is in the controller used. Teh 505 can display 8 shades while the Gen3 can only display 4 shades.

Very disappointed in the price. To pay extra for a bunch of dime-store stuff (cables, earphones, etc.) is a real shame. I would rather that they bought the basic version and then priced it competitively with the Sony Reader. No sale for me.

Good thing you pointed that out as the statement on the website implies that it's the deluxe package folks are getting for $75 less, at least that's how I read it.

You should probably look at it that you are paying extra for the leather case and you really need a case so it seems smart to include that in the package to avoid complaints.
