Sony has been in the eReader market for a while, but has taken some knocks at hands of its competitors that are selling better like the Amazon Kindle. Sony has now officially unveiled its latest lineup of eReaders. The new line includes the Reader Pocket Edition, Reader Touch Edition, and the wireless Reader Daily Edition in the US.
The entire line of readers gets some new updates like a new optical touch screen technology designed just for digital reader. The readers also bet better E Ink displays with 16 levels of grayscale. The new Reader Pocket Edition has a 5-inch touch screen, 2GB of storage and comes in silver or pink for $179. The Reader Touch Edition has a 6-inch screen, 2GB of storage, dual memory card slots, and comes in black or red for $229.
The new Reader Daily Edition gets WiFi and web features. The thing has wireless connectivity with the AT&T 3G network to the Sony Reader Store and has WiFi along with a 7-inch touchscreen. It also has 2GB of storage and up to 32GB of expansion space. It sells for $299. The Kindle and Nook still seem better to me.
