Sony Changes E-Book Software
Sony said this week that it will change its e-book store to the EPUB format by year's end. The format is used by the Sony Reader book-reading device.
"Our intention is to lead by example," Steve Haber, president of Sony's Digital Reading Business Division, said as part of the announcement. "Our Readers have long supported industry-standard formats such as EPUB and PDF. Now, what is quickly becoming the de facto standard for eBooks will be available in our store."
Sony recently announced two new models for the Reader, which will arrive later this month.
