My 700 has shipped!

Just got the confirmation from Sony; my PRS-700 has been shipped from San Diego.

Unfortunately, I signed up for regular shipping, and I live in NY, so I won't get it til Wednesday.

But still.... it's in the mail!

Me too :-) I got a shipping notification. Should arrive Tuesday. Sure wasn't expecting that so soon but will be glad to have it, then I can hopefully put fears to rest about using a touch screen and clarity questions.

What all were you worried about re: the touch screen & clarity? I played with one at my local Sony Store, and it was pretty phenomenal!

And mine has shipped, too! But nobody's given me an estimated delivery date...

ETA:
Ah, I have gone on to read other threads... I must say, I've had my 505 for over a year and use it daily and I noticed *no* difference between the screens. And I had my 505 with me & hauled it out to compare size, etc. The 700 was gorgeous.

Good. If you got a fedex tracking number it probably shows when you will get it delivered. Overall I wasn't worried enough to cancel the preorder. And it looks like more people have said good things about it. And the design looks great.

Please! All of you who already got a 505; Once you get the 700 post your opinions on the difference in contrast, if any, and how noticeable it is.

Mine has shipped as well!!!! I live in New Hampshire, though, and it's not supposed to make that extra couple hundred miles from San Diego until Thursday.

Yippeeeee!!!!!!!

I have the PRS500, so I'll post a comparison to that device.

wow ! i'm almost as excited as if it were my own device shipping. can't wait to hear your reviews, especially about the quality of the display !!!

special request, could somebody tell me whether the "show all bookmarks" feature that was possible on the 505 (by pressing the bookmark button longer) is still available on the 700 ? i'm curious about that.

in fact, if anyone finds a user's guide in digital form, i'd be interested in seeing it !

Mine is still "processing" but a recent email said shipping had been pushed back to 11/18. You are beyond lucky!

When you get it do me a favour and sit in a pitch black room and tell me if you can read?

Deb, I also got an email in mid-October saying that they wouldn't ship until 11/18. Guess they were just trying to surprise us =)

Will post a review when my unit arrives. I don't have a 505 but I do have a Kindle.

I hope so! And I'm totally not hitting "refresh" on my order status every hour. Nope. Not me.
