At least it's going to be out in the Wild soon and they have stock in the Warehouse. Hopefully someone on ebay will be flogging them soon.

Woo hoo! Just ordered mine from the internal Sony store. Go discounts ;-) I hope they still have stock, though, with all the crazy MobileReaders buying theirs...

What I was trying to say is that I figured there may be some ... discussion going on internally on the matter.

Oy. I didn't write down everything I asked! I'm not even sure I could generate a significant fraction of such a list.

We wants one in Europe too!

Sony Connect store is still not online.

Since it (Sony Connect Store) will work with the SW shipped with the reader (and books bought would be useless w/o the reader and SW), perhaps just a browser will not work? Just a thought, maybe wrong, one would certainly think a browser would work and it does work for the link to the $50 book credit, which has an ebooks connect store URL. Odd, and NatCh below is right, if they wanna promote the reader, they need to let folks w/o one browse the store...

In any case, we should know as soon as the first of us gets their unit. Probably
someone in CA, although I am in OR so if it should ship on Wed, I may get it by Friday.

Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy!

I may remember (I didn't write it down) a comment to the effect that you'd be able to browse the store via the internet to see the contents, but not be able to buy. So that you can see if they have stuff you want before you buy the Reader.

Do not hold me to that one, though, because I could very easily be mis-remembering.

Said this on another thread but I just called up the Sony Store by the Pentagon where I pass to go to work every morning and they told be it would be in store on Oct 1st. That's 5 days so guess where I'm going to be Sun morning.

Not sure if it was posted already, but looks like we'll get
"$50.00 Towards Purchases of eBooks With Sony© Reader Purchase and Registration Offer"

Which is not bad, if you ask me

Also, buying eReader we're doing another good thing

Heh, I think once it's been delivered, we will all act like jealous mothers and fathers not sharing the baby with anyone.

But yes, I'll have my photos too.

Question for those in the know. I ordered the "Pink" cover as stated on the store site, but on all other sites today everyone has refered to it being "Red".
I guess I should call Sony to find out. I have been so excited today! Such a long wait.
