Spring Design Alex to sell in China for $520

I reported back at CES that the Spring Design Alex was going to be sold in China by Hanvon and I then confirmed this back at the beginning of May. Now I can tell you the price. Zol.com are reporting that the Hanvon T61 is on sale now for 3580 Yuan. Are they nuts?

This ereader (like most) is made in China. You can get an authentic high quality knockoff for probably less than $200. Why would anyone pay $520? Heck, I don't even think it's worth $400(the US price).

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
