Now their 5-inch reader is priced a large percentage higher than competing 6-inch readers? If that is the way Sony is going to play the game, they might as well close their ebook division now, because they are dead.
I agree; their ebook readers need to be at least $50 cheaper across the board. Get the PRS-350 to $130 and it might have a chance. At $20-$30 more than a Wifi Kindle or Nook, and you have given consumers a reason to exclude the Sony from their list.
