Apparently 'Available Now' means 'Pre-order Now' to Sony

I was hoping to be able to pop down to the local Sonystyle store (in Annapolis, MD) and possibly purchase one of the new readers. Unfortunately, they will not have any stock until the 17th. They do have the demo models available. Okay, I figure, I could order one from Sonystyle.com. No joy. According to the product page, they will not ship till the 16th. I feel used.

Yeah, I just saw the switch from "notify me" to "preorder." my guess is I'll get an
email on the 17th which is pretty dumb marketing.

The lack of specs on the Daily page is pretty dumb, too. I might not even be interested but I probably won't buy a Touch until I know more about the Daily

Amusingly, that's when the Kindle is expected back in stock on Amazon UK

I know, but they obviously have most of the specs worked out because they at demoing it with the other 2. Given the pricng strategy, it makes no sense to buy the Touch right now when you might be interested in the Daily, since $80 more gets the larger screen and connectivity.

So I think they are going to arrest sales of the Touch until the Daily is released or at least specs are clearer.

SonyStyle seems to change every day.
Yesterday you could register to be notified when PRS-950 is available.
Today 950 isn't shown anymore instead you can (again) order the 900.
