The only piece of information we have is a Digitimes interview with PVI chairman Scott Liu who said:

"Sony is also expected to introduce larger e-book readers later this year to compete for market share."

So, really, nothing of substance. I hope we'll have more concrete news of this new Sony reader soon.

I would expect that sony would not dismiss the prs-505, it's more likely that they will keep the 505 and, at the same time, introduce a new 9,7" device (like Amazon did).
The recent price drop of the 505 doesn't necessarily mean that a new bigger device is going to be released.
