Where can international people buy this?

Apart from ebay what choices do we have? Amazon even dogged us.

I bought from them and had it sent to Singapore via UPS. The delivery was on time, and I am enjoying the eReader the last few weeks.

I've also bought it from BH Photo, shipped to Brazil with no problems.
Delivery also on time by UPS.

BTW, here in Brazil both UPS and FedEx will automatically contact customs and pay the due taxes, you have to pay them back upon receiving the package.

Beware: in Canada, UPS will charge up to 40$ to clear custom. Compare to ~7$ for FedEx and 5$ for USPS/Canada Post.

And I've bought it from B&H too

I'm in Hong Kong and bought from B&H with no problems - my 505 arrived 4 days later via UPS.

BHphoto has a lot of happy customers on this forum - I'm one of them.

Hey, davidw89, how about putting your country in your profile? It's hard to help people who come from "International".

Some countries charge tax on imports (UK) and others (Australia - goods under $1000) don't.

It was quite a lot, the final price almost doubled the price tag. That's the law.
