MobileReader porkupan has pointed out to us
that Sony has quietly released a PRS505 cover
with an integrated "LightWedge
" style reading light. I should note here that igorsk found these earlier
, but the Waterstone page lacked a picture (and description) so we didn't really know what we were looking at. The picture that porkupan found, really makes it clear, though.

I suppose that's about the same as the combined price of a cover and a standard LightWedge would be, so it's probably not all that surprising a number.
