Sony officially unveiled two new Readers we've already mentioned. The new Sony PRS-600 and Sony PRS-300 are supposed to make eBook readers affordable to a broader range of consumers. At $199 this is still not really hitting mass market appeal, but puts a little pressure on Amazon to drop the price of the Kindle eBook reader even more.

The Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 sports a 5-inch electronic paper display packaged in a stylish chassis and is available in a variety of colors, including navy blue, rose and silver.
The Reader Pocket Edition is easy to navigate with one hand, and fits into a purse or jacket pocket. The PRS-300 can store about 350 standard eBooks and provides up to two weeks of reading enjoyment on a single battery charge.

The Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 features a responsive, menu-driven 6-inch touch screen panel that enables quick, intuitive navigation, page turning, highlighting and note taking with the swipe of a finger or by using the included stylus pen.
You can take handwritten notes with the stylus pen or type with the virtual keyboard. All notes can be exported and printed out for easy reference. The Reader Touch Edition includes an onboard Oxford American English Dictionary that allows you to look up a word by simply tapping on it. The Touch Edition also offers five adjustable font sizes, as well as expansion slots for both Memory Stick PRO Duo and SD card, making your portable library virtually limitless. The PRS-600 comes in red, black or silver and will retail for about $299.

Through The eBook Store from Sony (ebookstore.sony.com), you can also access more than one million free public domain books from Google. These titles, which Google has digitized as part of its Google Books project, are available in EPUB format and are optimized for current models of the Sony Reader. From Sony’s eBook Store, Reader owners with a U.S. location can download and transfer any of these titles to their Reader, while new, U.S. located eBook Store users can access available titles after setting up an account and downloading Sony’s free eBook Library software.

At least Sony is now trying really hard to compete with Amazon. I have my bets though on Apple to spoil Amazon's eBook party at least on the device side.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
