Ready for Pre-order

While going through the internet, found an electronics store taking pre-orders for the Sony Portable Reader. Just thought you would want to know.

Here is the Address:

Actually, CCDMan, it's not optomism, it's confidence.


Though I do generally count Thanksgiving as a Holiday. (didn't there used to be a 'pilgrim' smilie? Or am I dreaming?)

Maybe they found out they aren't a "Preferred" enough Sony vendor.

Update:

Now it's saying:
"New Item- Available For Pre-Ordering / Free Shipping" -- we'll see how long it lasts this time.

Yeah. Fly-by-night internet electronics places often do wildly inaccurate preorder estimates. They have no idea when Sony is planning on shipping stuff (probably not even major retailers know that) but they're certainly willing to take your money.

I remember a much-anticipated MP3 player that showed up months early on random websites. It was never actually released, and I don't know what happened to the money of the people who preordered it...

I've seen them listed in Price web sites for many years, they are certainly not "fly by night". (In fact, their web site says "Since 1936" ! )

That said, I've never personally ordered from them before, so I have no idea whether they are good or horrible to deal with.
