Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1
If rumors are to be believed Amazon will get som real Kindle challenge in October. Sony plan to jump back into the ring with their new Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1. Not the most sexy of brand names, but who cares!
The price will be $149, and that finally follows the pricing for the rest of the industry.
Apart from a nicer price, Sony has finally brought wireless connectivity to the Sony Reader. That has been long sought for. And this eReader is also supposed to be the lightest on the market. Not the worst of news either! Of course you'll find the E Ink Pearl screen and battery life better measured in weeks than hours..., and the touch screen meets the current readers' expectations for modern devices.
A few other things that should excite people is that this is the first major eReader at the price point, to allow users to take notes in-text with a stylus. It will have expandable memory and come in a variety of colors. One limited edition offering will even include bundled Harry Potter eBooks! Things are definately looking up for Sony.
