Sony PRS-505 available in Japan?

Hi all, first post,

Sorry if this is a silly question but I've not been able to find it on the Yodobashi website? If available, any ideas on the price (£200 in UK - ouch!)?

I'll be in Osaka over new year and was thinking about picking one up.

Cheers all.

The Reader is currently only officially available in North America and (soon) in the UK.

The £199 price in the UK includes VAT, of course. Many people have imported them from the US from http://www.bhphotovideo.com but now it's officially available in the UK there's little point, price-wise, once you've paid postage, VAT, import duty, the courier's processing fees, etc.

Thanks for the fast reply, Harry.

I suppose that this may change between now and January so I'll wait and watch.
