Do the prices you mention include VAT or sales tax? In Europe prices normally include VAT.

For a 6" E-reader, including touchscreen and wi-fi, in Europe the price seem fair enough - perhaps even a bargain.
If I understand the site correct the price include VAT and shipping at the current price of 235.

Compared to a similar device, Bebook Neo, bought at Bebooks own site, the price is 299 plus VAT and shipping. Shipping within Europe is probably something like 10 to 15 and VAT somewhere around 17-19% on top of the listed sales price.

I am not entirely convinced that the screen glare is within tolerable levels, but if I didn't already have an Onyx Boox I would at least consider the Pocketbook 302 as a fairly good alternative.
