Mine is similar but as I am in australia I will have to buy a new cable I think. I want a epaper Nook as well as the Color I have now so am thinking I will go through USunlocked or something for the lot at once.
I think they need to work on the hardware side as far as the cable goes. Its a bit ratchety and hard to plug in. Would be nice if it just slid in without having to be so accurate.
