£59! The device is only worth 189 quid, what did they charge for (apart from their Christmas party)?

Mine should be here tomorrow, Customs have a slapped a charge on mine too according to the Tracking site.

The postman arrived a couple of hours ago and to my surprise he had in his hands my Sony Reader!! Two days between dispatch and delivery, and no problem with customs. I'm thrilled.
I'm going to play now, but i'll post again later.
To the others who have collected theirs today, have fun!
Sarah, do you remember, did I gift wrap yours? If so, that might be why you escaped the import duties.

Got mine, £63 customs charge! Ho hum, at least I have my clutches on one now. Very nice device! Screen is rather 'weird' to look at after being used to LCDs and it looks stunning in sunlight.

Forgot Parcelforce were such a pain, they send out a letter to say they have the parcel, guess they don't trust the delivery man with cash anymore! Luckily Parcelforce are around the corner from where I work, otherwise I have an 80 mile round trip (that's my local depot) to pick it up from home!

Thanks to geekraver for the device!

@geekraver. No, you didn't gift wrap it, I have no idea why I got lucky!!
On my tracking info the package was only in customs for 6 minutes!!
