The machines are still the same price (I've seen them cheaper at $87 at Best Buy's that still have them in stock) but the cases are on sale.

On the web site HERE.

Lighted cases were $49.99 now $19.97.

So I'm wondering if the next Generation won't fit the cases, they have waaaay too many, or they may be phasing them out.

Unfortunatly, I love them the most, so gut feeling is Sony will be getting out of the eBook reader business eventually, when stock of this one sell out.

Seriously, they never advertised like they cared anyone knew they were in it.

Fingers crossed I'm wrong.

I know, and now that they are out of Target, there is no where people can even be exposed to them. Best Buy is pretty much done with them, and Walmart never even got this model, as far as I know. I've never seen or been to a Sony store, though I have heard they exist.

I'm not buying the lighted case. I am fine with my m-edge case + light. I love that light. Anyway in bed is usually when I whip out my Fire.

Pretty much gone at Best Buy and Staples, (who did carry them for about five minutes) but I have seen really beat up and dusty boxes of some of the older models at Walmart.  They didn't last long. Someone was cleaning house.

I've never seen or been to a Sony store, though I have heard they exist.

I only know of one, and discovered it by accident. Could have knocked me over with a feather when I ran into it, 'cause I thought Sony stores were just Urband Legends! Lol.

What I find interesting is that our local used book store takes in electronics and games for trade. They have used models of just about everything but the Kindles and the Sony T-1's. So, either people around here won't give them up, (me!) or no one around here bought any to trade in. They had a lot of Sony PRS-300's for $40, but that's the one with the funky screen so I can see why people traded those out.

The Walmart's I go to around here have some PRS 300's on clearance. No display units. So I imagine they will sit there for a long time to come.
