Price cut on the Sony PRS-700

I was just checking the Sony Style site to show a friend of mine what the reader looks like (I had forgotten mine at home) when I discover that the actual price went from $399 to $349.

I just thought people should know about this in case they were thinking about buying it but thought it too pricey.

frustrating, isn't it. but you can just say it's proof of how cutting edge you are : you got it even before the price went down.

Pretty much. I paid 50$ extra to get in 3 books worth of reading. It's ok, it's just that I knew it, as I was paying I told the cashier "Watch this thing go down to 300 in a couple of days. Hahahaha" He said. " No way it just came out"

Yea. No way.

Plus this means that they are coming out with a new brother of the PRS700 pretty soon!

Wow, you folks are silly. I paid over $2000 for a Core Duo laptop right when the new chips were released. 6 months later I bought my son a similar speced laptop with a Core 2 Duo for $800.

Prices on tech goes down... and tech gets better. That's just how it works.

We are women, and we like to feel like we get deals! Not viceversa!
But I do know that's the way tech goes. One day we'll be seeing electronic newspapers being sold at newstands for 50 cents while we walk our grand children and complain on how I paid 400 for a book reader 75 years ago.

The natural order of things...

I think the price drop is to compete with the K2. And it's now cheaper then the K2. The K2 is $359.xx plus the cost of a cover. The 700 is $349.99 and you don't need to purchase a cover if you don't want.
