Sony Readies Wi-Fi Reader
Sony Wednesday announced the upcoming launch of the next Sony Reader, which will retail for $149 when it is available in October.
The Reader Wi-Fi (PRS-T1) also features a unique collaboration with J.K. Rowling's "Pottermore" website, which includes a free download of the first "Harry Potter" book.
"We believe in giving readers more freedom and flexibility while reading, and the new Reader Wi-Fi gives avid readers more access to content than ever," Phil Lubell, vice president of Networked Technology and Services Division at Sony Electronics, said as part of the announcement. "Bibliophiles can now buy, borrow or download free books wherever there's a Wi-Fi connection."
