Sony announced a further $50 rebate on high end PDA:
"After a recent $50 price reduction, Sony is now offering an additional $50 off with a mail in rebate. The offer applies to Sony's higher end Clie's, the NX80, NX73 and the UX series"
"After the previous price reductions and current rebate, the UX50 can be bought for $599 and the UX40 now retails for $499 USD from SonyStyle. The NX80 is down to $499 while the NX73 is reduced to $399. SonyStyle is also offering free standard shipping."
Right in time for Xmas !!!
There are quite a few places online that sell the UX50 for $500 - $560, and some without a rebate. Most offer free shipping also.

True, some online are selling for <$500. But I've also read tons of ppl complaining about getting a dud right out of the box. Then the company says "Send it to Sony, we do NOT do refunds or exchanges on dead units".
They had a big hassel in doing that. So a little safer to do it at a store I think.
Although, I think I can hold on to my lil PalmVx until OS6 UX-..... comes out !!
Most online stores have an exchange policy, and most will exchange for the same system. Just make sure and read the stores policy.

Better still, also look at a place like resellerratings.com and see what other people have had by way of DOA/return/refund experience. But be objective...sometimes people write before they "counted to 10" and cooled off a bit - really. Not that someone with a botched transaction wouldn't necessarily have a right to rant until they were blue in the face, but as a merchant I can tell you that there are almost always two sides to the same story, and many times when there is a customer "problem" it's that the customer didn't read all the information they should have before making a purchase. (seriously)
SonyRules: the company doesn't necessarily say "send it to sony"...Sony says that, in a big red sticker on the inside flap of the box. Or do not all UX' say that? (mine does and at least one other person I've heard from).

It is printed on all UX50's, but you are misinterpreting it. It probably is a translation problem. What it really says is "Ignore us, we are idiots, take it back and get one that works now!!"

Ah... thanks for the tranlation lostether ! haha

What it really says is buy your UX-50 from Dell. I did, and although I haven't had a problem, Dell isn't some fly-by-night outfit. I paid $580 and shipping was free.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
