But the price is 499 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is 723 $ with the current exchange !!!!!!!!!!

That's really far from the 399 $ price they have promised !!
Just have ordered mine.
I don't know about the promise you mention.
But the price to me makes sense:
- iRex iLiad is 549 respectively 599.
- Kindle DX is $ 489, even was more expensive before the introduction of international Kindle. And it has less features.
- Sony 900 is $ 399. Has got less capable touchscreen (WACOM vs. touch) and smaller display.
I don't have any problems at all with the price and would purchase any iRex unit in an instance without hesitation. (Still love my iLiad. Love 1000S as well, but it's simply too bulky for my needs).
