Going on past experience, it will cost the same wherever you buy it...

Sony's pretty good (if that's the right term) about getting consistent pricing when their new models come out.

It even said on my 25% off coupon for Border's Educator's Appreciation Weekend earlier this month, (in fine print) that it couldn't be used on the Sony PRS.

probably on the Sony website, they may offer deals if you sign up for their credit card as they did on the 505. I saved me $100 that way

on ebay you could get large distributors selling you with $25 off.. (predicted $375)
Newegg sells them the same price as in the sony store.

If you buy them straight from the sony store, you might get them the fastest though..
You can already pre-order them.

What's more, on the sony store you get a 100 classic books for free! ($399)

Don't get too excited about the 100 classics thing -- you can get most of those books right here at MobileRead, and generally they're formatted a good deal better.

I asked Sony when the 700 would be available in the Netherlands, but they couldn't get more specific than "2009"....

Too late/uncertain for me. Can anyone recommend a online US store which will ship to the Netherlands?

www.bhphotovideo.com -- they list the 700 but say it won't be available until mid-November. They do ship internationally.

Thank you. It's great that these readers can be charged via USB, saves the worries of compliant power-adapters.

Any power adapter which charges a PSP (play station portable) will work with the reader.

In the United States in the olden days -- about 5 years or so ago -- a manufacturer could "suggest" a retail price but could not require retailers to sell at that price. That was because of trade legislation and a US Supreme Court decision from the 1960s (I think that is when -- it's been too long since I practiced law for me to remember accurately, plus I have gotten much more senile as I have gotten older and older and older . . .). But with the advent of the Bush court, that has changed and manufacturers can now not only "suggest" the price but enforce the price.

From my causual observations of the retail market in the US, I would venture that Sony is probably the manufacturer most likely to do this. There is rarely any difference between the Sony MSRP (suggested price) and the retail price regardless of the store, and there is rarely much price difference between retail stores of Sony products.

I got the 505 back for 40% off by going into the Sony Store at Pentagon City right after New Years. I'd like to tell you I'd carefully planned that but it was dumb luck. They had three 505's they'd used as window displays and were letting them go at $170 apiece.

Don't know if the same thing will happen again this year.

You tried it before?
Seems interesting!
I still have my PSP adaptor laying around! Saves me some extra for chargers.
But even if,
I recently bought a digital camera,with mini-usb to usb connection; 5V,2000mah.
I bet it might work as well provided the Sony uses mini-usb.
Reason that I know is if the reader charges via USB, and my camera does as well,as long as the plug fits, the reader will charge..
Something to look out for in the 700 series (if they charge via USB or not).

So I'll have plenty of adaptors to choose from!

Worst case on a travel,I'll take the camera adaptor. It's smaller and lighter,and it (I presume) can charge both devices.
