FRY's Electronics lowest price on Astak EZ Reader tomorrow

Dear ALL:

For God's sake, look at the newspaper tomorrow and see the huge FRY's Electronics ad on the Astak EZ Reader BUNDLE BOX. IF it does not say Bundle Box in the ad do not worry... it is the ONLY one FRY's has.!! You WILL get the Bundle Box!! We are generating a $30 rebate for this three day event!! This is your last advance warning on a fabulous price for what many at MobileRead Forum feel is the best and most reliable eBook Reader out there!! It is 14 formats and twenty languages!! Wouldn't you love to buy eBooks from almost any website you choose? Wouldn't you like the best MP3 with equalizer on any eBook Reader? Wouldn't you like a device that is COMPLETE... even has the leather case, ear buds, 2GB SD card, Reader/Writer, 200 free classics, even a wrist leash and screw driver??

This is it, folks!! July 3 thru 5 is Astak EZ Reader days at FRY's Electronics or frys.com!!

Well, I love my Kindle1, but I gotta say............

You do make me want something I neither need nor can justify buying!


I hope everyone out there who is looking for an ebook reader, and wanting a lower price takes advantage of your offer.

It's a very good price. But for me, I'll wait another month and get a slightly small screen, with a faster proc, double levels of gray, and SLATE BLUE! All this and abt 20 bucks cheaper.

If not for the Pocket Pro, though, I would definitely order this.

Dear, RobertB. I love your continuing updates and your blog. But does anybody really care about MP3 equalizer here? On ebook reader site?

You are making your, helpfull at first posts sound more and more like free (for you) advertisement. Leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

P.S. On the other note, not to encourage spam advertising any more I am still ordering my EZ-Reader now. Offer too good to pass. Hope you won't be long with mail-in rebate.

Fry's makes the EZ Reader such a turn off. Sorry, but the EZ Reader really needs to be sold in a store that will actually sell to people. I don't live anyplace near a Fry's and they will not ship one. So think of all the lost sales that would generate. Dump Fry's if you want to sell more units.

I made a special trip to my Fry's store yesterday. The Astak EZ Reader was selling at $259 -- the same as a Sony PRS-505. The clerk could find no evidence of a sale or special price. In fact, he had to remove a price tag of $249 for a promotion that ended on 25 June.

Frys.com doesn't show the EZ Reader; I can't find it through a search for EZReader, ereader (which turns up the Sony), or Astak (which turns up a couple of camera devices).

I can't even figure out which of their thirty-odd little tabs an ebook reader should fall under, and looking at the Sony Reader listing doesn't tell me which category they've placed it in.

(Hm. A few minutes ago, searching for ereader got me the Sony. Now it gets no results. Searching for PRS-505 gets me the lightwedge, but not the reader. Do they not show any results for items they're sold out of? That would seem a poor choice on their part; it makes people believe they *never* carry the item, not that they don't have any in stock.)

Fry's search engine is atrocious and bad for sales.

Search on "ebook reader". That will return 3 readers (Sony, EZ Reader & one other).

1. Who is this "we" of which you speak? Do you work for Fry's? And, if so, then tell the folks in marketing there that not having a ship to your home option is a marketing disaster.

2. No, I use my ebook reading devices for READING. The quality of the mp3 matters as much to me as it would in a regular physical book.

I agree. I have MP3 player on my cell phone and jetBook but I NEVER used it. I use Creative Zen 8 GB Portable Media Player (highly recommend it) for MP3 and Video files.

Hi Kris777,
Here's a funny coincidence - I also have, and immensely enjoy, the Creative Zen 8GB player! I use it mostly for audio books, and sometimes for music.

Judging from the jetBook and the Zen, I think that we have similar (and very good) taste!
