Question Where to buy Sony PRS-T3?

When I go to the Sony Reader site (ebookstore.sony.com/reader) I select the Shop US option, but that redirects me to the Sony Store tablets, under which I am unable to find the Readers?

I know that Sony is not pushing the PRS-T3 too hard, but are they not selling them in the US right now? Even if I search the entire store for "reader", all I find are accessories and old discontinued models or the T2. If I select the Shop CA link, I go right to the T3s.

What's going on here? Thanks for any news or help.

Sorry to break the news but Sony is not selling the T3 in the US even on their website.

Found an article about it on Gigaom.

I'm getting a black t3 delivered to thailand from Spain - got it on ebay.

There's several that will ship internationally, and you could also try Amazon.co.uk or Sony Canada?

My prs-350 battery is losing charge a bit quick, so thought i'd get the latest Sony before/in case they stop producing them.

Marvin on an iPad mini is great, but the glare and backlight just doesn't compare to a good eink reader. And the extra 200gm weight to travel to work with is no problem, since i've ditched the laptop for an iPad...

The only place I know of (when I looked when it first came out) that ships the T3 to the US (besides some eBay sellers) is ShopEreaders. You'll pay a $50 premium plus about $15-$20 in shipping, but they'll send you one.

I'd kinda wanted one, but not bad enough to pay the premium.

I know. Sad. I just can't justify the price. My T2 is still working great. The Kindle Paperwhite 2 will be the main e-ink reader that I use this year. I bought a Nook Glowlight too, but it's really lacking in software features compared to the Kindle.

It's too bad, but you can find the right solution for you. Learning the news about Sony's readers was even stressful to me until I decided to evolve.

Research your options and keep reading.

Well, I already have the Paperwhite 2013, Kindle, and a Nexus 7 that I read on. Thought I might purchase a new Sony since the last one I had was the 350 a few years ago just to see how they have evolved. Hate the Reader store.

Do the ones that come from Spain have English language options and dictionaries?

No idea, yet. At least Spanish will be a lot easier to decipher than Japanese, although it seems beyond comprehension that Sony would design it to be one region specific to eqch firmware etc.

It is Sony, though... they are capable of staggering stupidity.

Yes, all PRS-T3s sold in Europe and Australia come with English language option and 15 dictionaries including 2 English (US/UK), German, French, Spanish and 10 translation dictionaries.
