why would anyone buy this over a kindle which gives much more bang for your buck imo

Maybe,but it's a dinosaur now compared to the new Kindle,and the fact it is more expensive makes it a non runner for me,especially with the free worlwide 3G on the Kindle.

use calibre and that's not an issue

I do use calibre. ;)

I was just making the point that you're not locked into Amazon's DRM with an e-reader like this Sony.

Okay im knew to all of this Ereader business and recently after a bit of research i concluded that the new Kindle look like the best to me, 2 things though i take it that the free worlwide 3G would let you connect to both Amazon US & UK Kindle store? and what is this calibre all about? thanks anyway

So will calibre convert all my current pdf's and ebooks to work on the kindle?

I already have the prs-300 but am a sucker for a new toy. ;)

It will convert your PDF files to mobi format but the Kindle can also read PDF files. You will have a problem converting any DRM files though
I also agree with a previous comment, the new Kindle makes the Sony 606 look very expensive.

Anyone want to by a Sony 505 and 300?

Amazon's newest Kindle is the best ebook-reading device on the market. It's better than the Apple iPad, the Barnes & Noble Nook, the various Sony readers…" - Fast Company

Battery life is long enough for space shuttle missions." - Wired
"
Kindle's winning combination of noteworthy upgrades—an improved screen, better battery life, lighter weight, and lower price—vaults it to the top of the e-book reader category." - CNet
"
Its solid build quality, along with its improved design, integrated store, and cross-platform transportability… all add up to a winner that shoots to the head of the pack." - PC World
"
Simply put, it's the best dedicated ebook reader you can buy… Amazon has managed to increase the contrast on the Kindle in a way that sets it above the Nook, Sony Readers, or any other dedicated ebook reader we've tested." - PC Magazine

new toy? this is the same generation as your prs-300! the screen on the prs-600 is nowhere near as good as my new prs-350 touch screen or the new prs-650.
