Well, the German Sony Style directed me to German Sony product info, where they said that there's no plans for "PDAs". And if I ever want to buy it, I should go to some online retailer, but not sony style. Both my interlocutors, seemed to have had no clue what kind of animal I was talking of, so chances are that all this is attributable to ignorance, not to actual plans of no european release...

I just ordered it - via my girlfriend who lives in the States!

Now I can sleep better.

There is a third party creating one. We got to see it, and it looks good. I'll post a few pics. I think Nathan's article already has a pic attached that shows a light option. And we can always hope that there is eventually a wedge side light product in the future also. I'm with you... I'd love to be able to read in the dark also. I like to read my Treo after I turn the lights out. But the e-ink display is so nice, I'm willing to turn a light on, or get a clip on light just so I can read on that screen!

Yes! Yes! Yes! Not only did I get a call from my house siding guy who actually will be starting EARLY (never happens with contractors) but now I have a reader on order!!!

I also ordered the cradle.

Regular shipping, of course - for the price of the speedy shipping I could buy about 20 books!

I did note that the page says "Shipping on or before October 31st".

OTOH, my order email said " Estimated Ship Date: 09/28/2006"

OK, given that the ebook store is not up yet, which one of those is just boilerplate?

This has been a long wait - I hope it is worth it!!

Y'all did catch that it comes with a black cover? You don't have to buy another one, unless of course, you want to.

You guys already received an order confirmation? Grrr... I should have told my girlfriend to use my e-mail instead. Now I cannot lookup the confirmation nor the estimated shipping date.

Mine has est'd ship date of 9/28 also. The slower free shipping will cause it to take some extra days, but if they get it out on Thursday, I'm thrilled. Then the package carrier has all weekend to drive it toward my house.

But the cradle says out of stock and ship date unknown...
" Sony® Reader cradle BCRRU1//C CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK Ship Date Unknown"

I can't imagine that they would hold the shipment of my reader to wait for the cradle. I hope not! And the two different shipping dates in my order would tend to indicate the reader will ship first.

I haven't received any email confirmation either and it's been hours for me. But if you have your order confirmation number and email address (or if you registered at the store site), you can see your order status. Go to the reader page on the store again, and look at the links at the top. One will be order status.

Is it true?

I called SonyStyle store to upgrade my shipping ($175 for 2-day was a bit high!). The very nice and helpful Customer Service Agent confirmed this was wrong and made the change to overnight. Before doing so she checked her system for availability and confirmed 9/28 ship date! I'm still not 100% convinced, but it does seem promising. -John

Why would you pay so much for that?
