PRS T2 Price Increase

Hello everyone; this is my first post here.

After nearly 3 years using my Kindle Keyboard, I'm in the market for an 'upgrade'. Also I'd like to move away from being tied to the Amazon format. So last week I checked out the Sony PRS T2 which was available at the Sony Online Store for 99. Yesterday, the price was increased by 20%; today it costs 119.

If you add in the cost of buying a couple of accessories for the Sony Reader - say a leather cover and a wall charger - the total outlay is 180. This is a ridiculous price and I can't see Sony getting many customers willing to pay it.

A Kindle Paperwhite is now cheaper than the Sony PRS T2. I might decide to stick with Amazon and get a product which, I understand, has superior technology.
