At the airport

Hi,
I'm going to be at Los Angeles Airport in November 19. Is there any way I could buy it when I am there? Thank you.

Do you mean "inside" the airport or nearby? I don't know about inside the airport but there is a Target store in Culver City you could visit if you have a long enough lay-over. Of course it would be best to call once you land to make sure they have one in stock before you head out.

There may be a vending machine that has one. I know people have mentioned seeing them... don't remember what airports though. Also, check to see if there is a Borders at the airport... if so, they may have it.

Here's a thread with a pic of the vending machine. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20243

I was assuming (probably wrongly) that kirisafar was traveling through from out of the country and wanted a U.S. version of the Sony.

Don't waste your time at the airport Sony Stores. We flew out to the US the day after the 505 was officially launched in the UK, sometime around the 3nd September. Even with the tax saved at the airport it was still about £15 more expensive than in the high street. Know your prices in advance and then you'll soon see that airports are not necessarily the place to save money.

I do not think he wants to buy it from an airport based on monetary factors. He wants the device right after launch with minimum hassle.

You're right humzai, I'll be living in New Zealand for at least a year and I don't want to wait or pay the premium whenever it arrives there.

Good luck with that! No 500 at any stage. No 505 yet so I bought mine in the US when there on business. Australia hasn't seen it yet.

If you wait it may be a futile one.......

Of course if I'm wrong then great stuff and I'll be wandering along to the Wellington Sony Style for a look-see even with the NZD being so weak
