Why??? It is being released as a tablet not a reader and the device getting clearance is a reader...

Love the look of the Tablet S-just looks so holdable.
Not a big fan of dual screen Tablet P yet.

Sony have never competed on price - they're selling a premium product at a premium price, and there's clearly a market for that. I see no reason to suppose that their policy will change.

I personally find that clamshell rather intriguing. But, again, not a replacement for a 6" screen. They'd have to drop the e-ink line completely then, if these two are the only things to replace their current 5" and 6" line.

When Sony puts their mind to it they can really put out some nice products. However, their ereader was regarded by many as overpriced, and struggled in most markets iirc. They may very well offer a premium tablet, but competing in the premium tablet category hasn't worked out so well for non-Apple companies. But ya never know: maybe this one will work out.

As far as dumping current readers, yes it looks like new readers are on the way, but let's also remember that the current Sony readers have gone in and out of stock and have said "discontinued" at various sites at various times practically since they were introduced. So take that with a grain of salt.

I do notice, though, that the 350 and 650 appear no longer to be listed at the UK Sony Store. I don't think that's happened previously.

Bol.com always has an order ability, even if out-of-stock. When there was a limited supply, it'd just state a very long delivery time... Now, it simply says "not available"...

I think they're just selling out the "old" ones so that they can get ready for the new readers. Not sure I'm happy about the plastic, but we'll see. . .
