Sony Store down for maintenance

Could this mean a new and improved ebook store, maybe software, firmware? Who knows but my guess is we'll know later today.

I'm hoping for an iPad and a Android App.

Firmware update is highly doubtful.

Software is also doubtful as Sony won't fix something THEY don't think is broken.

We were expecting the smartphone app sometime in December.

Could you always buy readers and accessories right from the Reader Store without being re-directed to SonyStyle?

So what changes were made to the site? The mobile apps aren't available yet.

Maybe the Reader Software, but I can't be sure. I was trying to download and reinstall because the version I was running became corrupted.

OK, yes, my Reader software did update when I opened it. Disappointing. For the length of time that it was down, I expected something else.

S, From your postings, tt seems quite clear that you have become disenchanted with Sony. People have gotten that message without your continuing to hammer the point home.

It begs the question as to why you still lurk/post here!?!'

What is your problem!? My posts have never been out of line or inconsiderate of others. I'm anxiously awaiting the Reader app for Android to use on my rooted NOOKcolor. Back off.

Are you saying that I shouldn't frequent here any longer because I sold my 900 and haven't purchased a Sony replacement, yet? Or am I no longer qualified to assist others? Get a grip.

What’s up with that… Way out of line! I agree it’s time for a visit to the “Samsonite Factory”, for that Creasey Guy... Needs a new Grip!...

Scion’s participation on MR is way, way above board…. Always helpful and to the point.
