Both Kindle and Nook are set up such that readers can get books without ever having to connect to a computer... and yet Sony is still limiting that to the Daily Edition? In addition, they have had touch screens for a year now and yet the PRS-300 has been their best seller...
From how I read the survey questions, I think Sony believes that the touch technology was not the real issue but the quality of the screens. I'm concluding that they felt if they can eliminate the screen quality issues, then touch is the way they want to distinguish themselves. I think the new PRS-650 have wireless capability. I don't know if it's 3g or wifi but the PRS-950 does have both.
