The Milestone 312 hasn't slipped under my radar; I have been interested in it for some time....but the price of it, around $479, or so, when it does not yet even play files from bookshare, is just way too high. I would love to have the add-on's, for color identifying and bar code scanning, but at $260 and $999, the Milestone 312, with all its handy extras, is unrealisstically priced. Yes, I would love to know exactly what flavor of cat food I am about to put out for the household tyrant, but I'm not going to pay virtually $1000, for the privilege. The ability to have up to six Acapella voices downloaded on the Milestone 312 , makes me willing to put out the initial $479,, but if I wouldn't even have access to bookshare titles? Once Bones gets that seen to, I will reconsider the Milestone, or maybe when and if I win the lottery. Then again, knowing the frailty of these devices, and how they can give up the ghost from the static in a bath mat, makes a person wonder what would happen with it, when it needed repairs. How would I feel, when I want it repaired tomorrow, but it has to go all the way back to Switzerland?? Does anyone in North America repair the Milestone?
