Where can i buy PB360 in UK?

Hi guys. Seems to me like nobody sells PB360 in UK. Where would i find one? I looked up on Ebay on it i found items shipped from US. Tried to Google it but all the websites aren't trusted. Any trustworthy seller you could recommend in UK?
Thanks for answering my d@@b questions folk in advance...

Exchange rate fluctuations are a much more likely explanation than criminal conspiracies. The Pound is considerably higher against the Euro now than it was a while ago.

you can get it from greenreader in the uk - but I wouldnt recommend it. Its expensive and flimsy, mine broke after a few weeks and there is no warranty on the screen. The shell and cover offer little protection. At £195 its almost twice the price of kindle for example which is crazy when you see what you get. the 302 is considerably better at pretty much the same price but is bigger of course

No reading device supplier gives a warranty on the screen.

There are some sellers who give insurance for the glass screen (AKA you pay a higher sum when you buy it and they substitute it in case it breaks).

Charging £200 for a 5 inch ereader made of pretty flimsy plastic is more than enough to provide that kind of insurance. I don't know any other manufacturer charging so much for so little.

Bookeen's Cybook Opus; Astak Pocket Pro / BeBook Mini. AFAIK only Sony has a 5-inch eink reader under $200 USD, and that lacks any firmware updates and has antiquated software and lack of expandable memory.

That was £200 UK pounds I quoted not $200 (note the sign)! 200 pounds equates to $300 more or less. The Sony PRS 300 sells for £124 in the uk which makes it some ways over $100 cheaper. Thats quite a premium price difference to pay on the 360 for upgradeable F/W especially if the build quality is inferior! More interestingly pricewise, is the new Kindle which in addition to wifi has the new improved pearl screen and sells for £110 which is almost half the price of the PB360!

Is it so bad?? It contradicts what i heard about PB360... I have to months to decide which one i'll buy and so far my choice was PB360 since it accepts so many formats has an updates and is fully customizable. Kindle has a loadz of restrictions that's why i opted out. And reads only few formats. So which one should i buy??? I feel puzzled...

I would respectfully disagree with the previous poster; I think the PB360 is the best 5" reader on the market. Any eInk device has to be treated with a certain degree of respect, but look after it, and you really shouldn't have any problems. The thing you need to avoid is any kind of "twisting" force - that's what will fracture the glass substrate of the screen.
