Buying a Sony Reader outside of the USA

Hello all,
The waiting is almost over, october not so far away... But SonyStore is not accepting pre-order from non-US people.
Has anyone found a place yet to order it despite of that US only policy ?

Not really unless your friend also pays for you. In most cases, your credit card payment will fail if you don't enter the correct billing address - and since the form only allows for the billing address to be in the US, there is no way you can properly finalize the payment. Have your friend pay and wire him the money overseas.

I doubt you will see it on Amazon because they have a competing product... the Kindle e-ink reader that was leaked but not yet announced. And due to the tie-in to their own e-book content sales, they will probably want to stay exclusive.

Well, maybe not Amazon, but other stores will carry it. See this thread, for instance.

If you go to the checkout you find out they will only ship inside the US.

I really hope ebay is not the only option here; I would hate to pay up extra to some clever bugger.
