Sony has officially launched its portable Reader device, which offers a high-resolution electronic paper display for reading eBooks and other documents. It's designed to give a printed look that's easy on the eyes. The company has also opened an eBook store to support the Sony Reader.
Over 10,000 titles are available from the CONNECT eBook store thanks to agreements with a number of publishers, Sony said, although book pricing was not discussed. The Sony Reader features on-screen controls and has a battery life equivalent to 7,500 page turns. It will retail for $350 USD from both SonyStyle and stores such as Borders.
