Do you have a maddeningly powerful, nigh-unsatisfiable thirst for a Sony Reader? Probably not. But if you think the Reader Daily Edition sounds like a cool gadget, you can pre-order it now from The Reader Daily Edition is a pretty big step up from the Sony Reader. The Daily Edition adds a 3G wireless connection, and also packs 2 GB of internal memory, a 7" screen, and expansion slots for memory cards.

Oh, and did I mention the 3G is free? There are no fees for basic connectivity. That sounds really odd, but you have to remember that Sony is relying on 3G access to provoke people into making impulse e-book purchases. The Reader Daily Edition doesn't have a browser in the traditional sense, so it's not like people are going to run Sony into bankruptcy by browsing excessively.

The Daily Edition sounds great, right up until you get to the price...$399. So you could spend four hundred bucks on this one-screened, grayscale reader, or you could spend almost half as much on a nook. Barnes & Noble's answer to the E-Reader costs just $259 and will hit stores on November 30th.
