I am a big fan of SONY readers - but it seems pretty likely that this is the end of the line.
How else can you explain the discontinuation of accessories for something that has been out for less than a year?
Truth is, it makes sense. SONY's strong point has always been the hardware - and it is becoming clear that hardware will not drive profits in this industry.
Pity, but clearly in line with SONY's uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
