these are a lovely bit of kit to hold and as clear as print to read. 2 problems - the price, still to high about £50 would be right and I want to have a go with a Kindle before deciding which is best.

if you want one now, this is a good price, although they are dropping steadily.
This is better than a Kindle, but rightly said, about £100 overpriced.

Great deal though.

Well found, buddy!
i was bored and was looking for an argument :D

As always! :thumbsup:

Got that card coming. Let's hope it's worth the money!!
The usual warning about Play:

"Our returns policy is valid for 28 days from receipt of an item."

Basically, if your Sony fails 5 weeks after you've received it, you'll have to deal with the manufacturer.

A UK retailer wouldn't be able to get away with this because of the Sale of Goods legislation which protects consumers. Jersey doesn't have one.

Buy from Play at your own risk!
When is the Kindle coming to the UK? And what will the costs be?

Hi Alan,

No news on UK release date - Kindle DX is released in the summer in the US. It's being sold as a pre-order on Amazon in the US for $489 which is about £320 here. Ouch.
