I've just gotten word (via MobileRead) that the Edge will be available in Europe in July. Here's the email one member got from Entourage:
Thanks for your email and interest in enTourage eDGe. We will start the official distribution in Europe at the beginning of July. However I can offer you the possibility to pre-order via email.
If you can provide me with the model you want to order, your full name, delivery address and telephone number.
The EU MAP price for the enTourage eDGe are as following:
enTourage eDGe: Midnight Blue € 599 - including 19% Dutch VAT
enTourage eDGe: Black € 629 - including 19% Dutch VAT
enTourage eDGe: Red € 629 - including 19% Dutch VAT
enTourage eDGe: Glacier € 629 - including 19% Dutch VAT
enTourage eDGe: Ice Blue € 629 - including 19% Dutch VAT
If you are a registered company outside the Netherlands, with a valid VAT number I can sell the device without 19% VAT.
If you pre-order now I am able to give you a 25 euro discount and we will deliver you the device on July the 10th, you will be one of the first in EU to receive the enTourage eDGe reader.
Thanks for your response in advance.
If you take out the VAT, the total is ~480€. That converts to ~$584. Given that the Edge is selling for $499 in the US, that's not all that unreasonable of a markup.
