NYTimes posted too. Some quotes:
Quote:
On Wednesday Sony will introduce a new line of e-readers and applications for iPhones and Android phones.
...
“Consistently the number-one thing we heard was it needs to feel like a book, so you just forget that you have a device in your hand,” said Steve Haber, president of Sony’s digital reading division.
...
While the older versions required forceful touching, the pages of the new readers respond even to a hovering finger. Sony also used an improved E Ink Pearl display so text is now visible in direct sunlight, the company says.
...
The Pocket and Touch Editions will be available Wednesday and the Daily Edition by the end of the year.
The new phone apps will be available later this year and, like the Kindle app, will allow people to pick up where they left off in a book when they switch devices.
Sony is also expanding availability internationally — including to Italy, Spain, Australia, China and Japan — and the new readers include 10 translation dictionaries in addition to two English ones.
