If someone in the UK midlands (Telford/Shrewsbury) wants to see a PRS-900 before importing one, I'd be happy to meet up. People have different opinions of the screen, so it would be wise to check, although personally I (who unwisely bought it blind) like it.

Doing it already :P It's quite surprising, you almost don't notice the difference between pbook and ebook... except for the bad editing, which of course I'm too lazy to edit away.

Following the news that Bøg & Ide are going to start selling ebooks, anyone who needs to see the IREX DR800S before deciding whether to
spend a lot of money is welcome to PM me.

Actually about all of the bookshop companies in Denmark should soon begin selling ebooks from their websites.

Current e-book reader resellers:
http://www.boegerogpapir.dk/Default.aspx?ID=690
http://www.bog-ide.dk/Default.aspx?ID=669
http://www.boghandleren.dk/Default.aspx?ID=677

All the resellers sell the same readers, but they are unfortunately expensive, currently the the different chains of bookshops give their shops the choice of selling ebook readers, and they are also currently limited to the Elonex and BeBook readers, which are coming from http://www.e-medie.dk/index.php?cPat...7ec6ec374801a4 but as you can see at that link the cybook will probably be available soon.

Personally I'm going to buy a nook when I'm in America during August this year, I will have to live with DTBs till that time, because I don't really like the Elonex compared to a nook and I feel too locked down with a kindle.

After having looked at the Irex reader you got I quite like it, how much did it cost and where did you buy it, also where do you live if you are going to show it to people?

PB 360 in SF Bay Area?

Anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area have a Pocketbook 360 you want to show off? I've nearly settled on that one, thanks to everything I've read here. But if possible I'd love to actually see one first.

I have an Asus 1005HA that I'll happily show off, should anyone want to see one.
