Which Firmware version?
wasn't sure which forum this fitted into so opted for main one.
I am confused.... easily done, I'm told, but that's another story.....
Th new Sony Estore, which I assume can only be used in the US, (why?) stating that the latest firmware for the 505 is V1.1.something
I bought my 505 in the UK and it has Firmware 1.2.something
What on earth is going on? Have Sony lost the plot somewhere along the line?
Just spotted an unintended pun in that last question....

Nothing's going on. Sony Readers sold in Europe have a different firmware version to those sold in North America. Nothing "sinister" about it. The Sony store is referring to the firmware version of North American versions of the Sony Reader.
Why can the Sony Store only be accessed in North America? Legal issues related to eBook distribution rights. Those rights are generally sold on a "per country" basis.
