Question The $60 Million Dollar Question.....who stocks it???

Been trying to hunt down a PRS-900 after playing with one in my local Sony Store. After reading reviews, seeing what it comes with, and loving the idea of downloading newspapers, and in the future RSS feeds into it, who at this point has them in stock? I call my local store daily, they ALMOST thought they were getting them in stock last week and of course....no dice.

Definitely not willing to buy above retail, so Ebay is out of the question.....anyone know a good place at this point?

Right now: Sony and Best Buy are your best bets.

Sony's direct customers come first with the Reader, then Best Buy, then pretty much anyone else who wants to stock them. Because of the shortages, only direct orders to Sony got the first batch. Looks like the second batch (which should be slipping out last week and this week) are for the backorders at BB and Sony that didn't get into the first batch.

Ordered mine from Sony 1/12 and it shipped 1/15. It's now on a slow truck somewhere between Chicago and Houston. Sony's site says orders today should ship on or about 1/29.

I ordered mine from Sony on 1/15 and paid for expedited shipping and should get it today(1/19), even though the site said would not ship until 1/29.

Any store sitings yet? I'm wondering when they might be available at the Sony stores (or others) I'd really like to see one of these before I buy it, but am very heavily in the "likely-to-buy" category.

There is a demo at the Sony Style store in the Forum Shops in Las Vegas. I haven't called in a week, but they were expecting a shipment.

Just checked the tracking and mine is on the truck for delivery today. That was Standard shipping (free) so I'm happy.

I ordered on 1/12, Sony said they shipped on 1/14 but FedEx picked it up on 1/15. In my hot little hands today. The battery was half charged so I read a couple of the samplers then uploaded some books. First photo is with the screen cover Sony calls a soft cover closed. Second is just the initial home page before I did anything.

How the heck does that work? I ordered 3 weeks ago from BB, and haven't heard a peep.

Also fixed your typo, unless you had gift cards applied to it as well.
