Viewsonic VEB-620 now in stock at J&R, Amazon

I think I threw my back out dancing for joy. This is the first time that I've seen this ereader in stock in the US. Why is that important? Because now I can start bugging the US division to lend me one.

This is your typical 6" ereader (no Wifi or touch screen). It comes with 2GB Flash, SDHC card slot and support for Adobe DE DRM.

This ereader first showed up back before the Nook wifi was announced. At its original retail ($269), it was a little over priced but still in line with Sony and Pocketbook. Now that it's selling for $179 and you can get the Kindle Wifi for $139, I think you should avoid the VEB-620.

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."

  1. Hi Nate,
    just checked and discovered that it is sold in Italy, too. A retailer (Chl.it) sells it at 234.90 euros.
    A bit high (!), but who cares…? I bought a Kindle DXG last month and a Kindle 3 three weeks ago 😉
