I interrupt normal transmission to spread the love that Sony has finally (finally!) decided to sell and support their Readers in Australia. Apparently, they will be for sale from around $229AUD for the Pocket and $299AUD for the Touch from Borders, Myer and other retailers. Oh joy!! Just look at that pretty pink one! *sigh* I already have a Sony PRS-700 and while I'm happy with it, the screen clarity can leave a bit to be desired. The Pearl eInk screens on the newer models are, I'm told, much better. I can't wait to test drive one in a shop and if they are as good as I hear, I'll be picking up a new baby and keeping the old one around as a spare.
It appears it's true, good things DO come to those who wait.
