    Kohl's seems to be selling their white pandigital's for 59.99 -- some stores at least.

    Cases are also on sale.

    In store. I picked one up in Salem or this morn and someone at slatedroid picked one up elsewhere.

    No, the site does not list anything.

    They also had another reader for 74 ???? on what it is, has a keyboard like the kindle3.

    It comes with reader/library and limited android stuff like web, video, pics, music and email. They also offer an open platform that is basically android 2.1 without app market.

    There are mods of the firmwares that allow for app market and other nice stuff. I run open platform and love it.

    I called up our local Kohl's and they confirmed that they have 5 Pandigital "eReaders" for $59.99.

    I thought for a few minutes about picking one up, but then that... "naaahhh..." lol

    FYI.. San Diego, California area.... I only called 1 store in Santee, CA. There are about 6 others in the area.

    In Seattle at the moment and they had some on sale. The 6" is 65 or something and the 7" only 55.

    Not sure why people are saying 60...is that after tax?

    I will get one, as that is ridiculously cheap and I think after modifying it, it can be a cool toy for very cheap (oh and it's an ereader =p)

    I went there a few hours ago and bought one. 59.99 but if you had a kohl card (free to sign up at the counter) then it's about 55 after tax. So a real bargain. Look forward to playing with it and making it open source

    Best to make sure you get V2 hardware Don't end up with V1. I had already had two of these prior. I am not in for it. The parent company that makes these is called FoxConn which makes the Cruz Reader that other Pocket one too long with Pandigital White 7".

    Next Gen one will be dual core 660MHz

    How do you tell if it's a V1 or V2 unit? I've looked through the forum and didn't find it.

    I guess I got lucky... The Kolh's located in Centennial Hills/Las Vegas had 3 in stock.

    I bought two to give out as birthday gifts for the in-laws next month.

    Thanks for the tip.

    So I called my local Kohls and they said they sent them all back. I called one a little further away and they said they had one 6" model for 74.99 or so. Any idea what the 6" model is? I don't see any references to it in this forum. Are there custom android ROM's for it?

    Thanks

    I got mine rooted and running full android using version 3 found here http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...6-8-20-versions-market-volume-hack-built.html and its working great! for 60 dollars its amazing. I also installed button savior so i can have easy buttons and i installed a power off app to make turning it off easier. if you dont know how to install the custom firmware read post 10 in the thread i already listed.

    Twivel i dont know what the 6 inch one is but maybe someone else does.

    Several!
    The Kohl's in Sunnyvale (Silicon Valley) had a stack of them, stocked among the picture frames. They are still marked on the rack as $199 but price check came up as $59!

    As it turns out, the 6" model is the Sharper Image Literati e-reader. No clue if there are custom ROM's for turning it into a generic tablet.
