Sony Released New eREADER


Sony today introduced today Reader (PRS-T2), a light and thin 6" eReader with a touch screen optimized for long-term reading.

Available in three colors - white, red or matte black ? Reader offers new social features and a simplified home screen.

The glare-free, E-Ink Pearl V220 touch screen has been enhanced for optimal long-term reading. It now features intuitive touch, more paper-like page turns, improved continuous page turns and a smoother zoom in and out. The new device features an improved default book layout and makes it easier to organize and find books. The device has two English language and four translation dictionaries built-in and provides up to two months battery life(with wireless off) and 2GB of storage. Readers can swipe a finger to turn a page, zoom in and out by pinching fingers together or apart or write notes on the page or highlight text with a finger or the supplied stylus. Users can also choose from eight font sizes and seven font styles.

Specifications of this newest model include:

- 6 inch Pearl 600x800 pixels display with Clear Touch IR technology
- 1.3GB internal memory with microSD expansion card slot
- Support for ePUB and PDF with Adobe DRM, TXT, JPEG, PNG, GIF, and BMP
- Facebook and Evernote support
- 6 built-in dictionaries for translation support
- Dimensions of 6.9 x 4.3 x 0.4 inches and 5.9 ounces

The device includes new Facebook and Evernote features.



For the first time, Reader is combining features from Evernote to allow users to save their favorite web content to enjoy any time. Evernote's Web Clipper allows saving content with a click, and pages saved with Evernote Clearly are optimized for Reader?s E-Ink display. Favorite passages can also be annotated on Reader and saved back to Evernote for viewing later on any smartphone, tablet or PC.

With built-in Wi-Fi, Reader PRS-T2 offers users more access to books anytime and anywhere. Sony continues to offer its public library lending feature by offering patrons with a valid library card the ability to easily and borrow free e-books wirelessly from over 15,000 public libraries in the US via an intuitive, simple-to-use dedicated icon on the device.

Beyond borrowing free books from public libraries, book lovers can also continue to access and download thousands of e-books, newspapers and magazines from Reader Store directly to the device using a Wi-Fi connection.

As part of Sony's collaboration with Pottermore and the Pottermore Shop (the exclusive home of the Harry Potter eBooks), Sony will offer a voucher to redeem against the first eBook in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, for free. The voucher can be redeemed at the Pottermore Shop following purchase of the matte black Reader PRS-T2.

Reader PRS-T2 is available for order now for about $129 at Sony Stores and online at http://store.sony.com and other retailers.
