("American" or "Russian") do you prefer. All the advantages and disadvantages of both types of Sony PRS-T1 models can be found in relevant section
1. Version for U.S. and European markets:
"American" devices are well represented in the section
of The-ebook.org forum.

Also a lot of suggestions can be found in Russia at radio markets and in shopping centers (e.g., TC "Mitinskiy radiorynok" or TC "Gorbushkin Dvor" in Moscow). When purchasing you have to be sure with the right firmware version number
as in such places the e-books, intended for the Russian market, are also sold.
Sony Reader PRS-T1, designed for American and European markets, can also be purchased abroad, e.g. in USA.
As a rule, even with shipping to Russia it would cost a little bit cheaper. Among the few drawbacks of this method of purchase - a mandatory prepayment, there is no way to test the device prior to payment, and a long enough period of delivery: a parcel from the U.S. to Moscow needs to be delivered normally in 10-20 days (Express mail) or 20-30 days (Priority mail). Another disadvantage is that you have to install the alternative firmware and additional applications
for the Android yourself. Below are the most popular places to purchase e-books:
