Options for buying 360 in the UK? Or Poland?

Hi, this is my first post on MobileRead so please be gentle with me

After reading countless reviews on different eReaders I've decided to take the plunge and opt for a Pocket Book 360.

I'm from the UK but live currently in Warsaw and make trips back there several times a year.
I'd like to get the 360 from a UK supplier or if possible from a supplier based in Warsaw (doubtful I know).

What are the options for buying in the UK? I understand there is no official distributor at present.
I've seen ads from a company called GreenReader.co.uk - does anyone have any experience of this company?

What are other people's experiences/ideas about getting the 360 in the UK?

Thanks

Thanks, Kacir, but it seems they only sell the black ones.. or that they don't let you choose the colour. I wanted the Ivory.

Anybody else with experience of buying from the UK?

I am pretty sure they DO sell ivory ones.
Just write an email to them.
They are based in Ostrava, practically on the Czech/Polish border.

Of course, as I already mentioned in our e-mails, we are official partners of PocketBook Global - in UK and Baltics.
I guess i have seen a couple persons here - with experience in www.greenreader.co.uk
Maybe they will join us and share their opinion and experience.

I live in the UK and I purchased my PocketBook 360 here:

http://www.my-ebook-reader.de/epages...792/Categories

They are in Germany.

I first emailed them because their website is in the German language which I do not understand. They wrote back to me in excellent English and were very helpful.

Their email address is:

info@my-ebook-reader.de

I paid for the device using PayPal and the ebook reader arrived very quickly - by return of post it seemed to me.

I have had absolutely no problems with the device and it is my favourite.

Thanks to all who replied - I decided to order from Pocket Goods with their offer of free shipping and it will (hopefully) get to me relatively quickly here in Poland (pray to god that Poczta Polska [Polish Postal service] is not involved anywhere in this process!).

Thanks to Jelena also, for her help and offers.

Did you ordered a PB360 too? We dispatch every day a lot of them. But almost nobody writes his/her MR name in the order form. So i had to guess who you are in the real life

BTW for ordering
