Sony today announced its newest addition to the Sony Reader Family - the Reader Daily Edition - is now available for pre-order on SonyStyle.com.
The Reader Daily Edition joins the Reader Pocket Edition and Reader Touch Edition to round out Sony's family of digital readers. The Reader Daily Edition gives consumers wireless access to Sony's eBookstore from most of the U.S., via a 3G mobile broadband network. Book lovers will be able to browse, purchase and download books as well as select newspapers and magazines on the go. There are no monthly fees or transaction charges for the basic wireless connectivity and users still have the option to side load personal documents or content from other compatible sites via USB. Sony will announce newspaper and magazine content providers within the next month.
The Reader Daily Edition features a menu-driven, seven-inch touch screen panel that enables quick navigation, page turning, highlighting and note taking with the swipe of a finger or by using the included stylus pen. Users 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 users to look up a word by simply tapping on it.
