Sony Released A New eReader! Wait, Sony Makes eReaders?
Hey everyone, Sony has released a new eReader: The PRS-T2. Snappy name!
Here's the specs:
- 6-inch e-ink reader with touchscreen
- Two month battery life
- 2GB of storage
- Retails for $130
- Let's you post clips from books you buy through the Sony store to Facebook and Evernote
Gizmodo says it's a "perfectly nice, usable reader," but pointed out that it's more expensive than the base models for both the Nook and Kindle, and doesn't offer any extra or unique features to close that price gap.
I feel bad for Sony. It was one of the first companies on the eBook market--its first eReader was released in 2006, and the first Kindle didn't hit for another 14 months after that. Getting to the party early didn't help much, as Sony now makes up a fraction of eBook sales.
But, it's important to have options. Anyone out there own a Sony reader? Anyone interested in picking up this model?
