With Sony's recent announcement
that they are going to go all ePub in their store, those of us (like me) who still use our beloved PRS500s may be feeling a bit left out.
Sony has said that they're working on an "update solution" for our venerable 500s, but no details thus far have been forthcoming.
I've got kind of a detail for you ... maybe half a detail. No, I still have no word on whether they've figured out a firmware fix or are planing a trade in, but I do
have news about timing. Word is that they plan to have the "update solution" ready by the end of the year, when they switch the store over to all ePub.
There is a channel available to get notified when the mysterious "update solution" is ready: send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
with “500” in the subject line -- that is supposed to add you to a list to be notified.
I've already sent my own request.
Who's with me?
