Sony never make the "cheapest" anything, so I am not surprised by this statement of theirs. I'm excited to see what Reader they will come out with next, though.

I may have been a bit hard on Sony in my comment there. I love Sony gear too, and I do agree that they shouldn't be chasing the rock bottom price either. I am also happy to pay premium for quality. Sony's build quality is next to none. I only hope they improve on screen quality. I would personally gladly sacrifice the touch capability for better screen contrast.
I really do hope Sony comes up with new generation of e-readers soon. What they offered in this original article is nothing but marketing fluff.
