Lightbulb SonyStyle - Reader Market Research Survey

Did anyone else get this after ordering from the SonyStyle website? It looks like Sony is interested in how you get your books, what might entice you to spread the word and even hosting new tech demonstrations (like Nintendo did with Wii House Parties).

Sony might be thinking about rewarding you for reffering customers with ebook credit or sonystyle credits, as well as to the referred customer ($20-$35) or even a Trade-In to Charity where you'll receive credit for your old reader, which then goes to schools to pasture. They even wanted to know where you get your books (eBook store v. Gutenberg v. Mobileread!).

Also, they had an option to be contacted for hosting a tech demonstration for 15, with giveaways and demos of upcoming stuff.

Interesting directions, though its just a survey, but that Sony has been thinking of new ways to promote the reader.

Yep, specifically, along the lines of

What percentage of books do you download from third-party websites (i.e. Mobileread.com)

I dont use this source
0-30%
31-69%
70-99%
This is my only source

They had similar questions for Ebookstore, Fictionwise, eHarlequin, ProjectGutenberg and file sharing.

Yes, I got it --- about forty questions, pretty painless. Seems like Sony is beginning to take notice of their Reader!

Was this a dead tree survey through the post or an email? If an email maybe it would be worth posting on here. I'm not interested in prizes and such like I just think we need to get Sony to know our thoughts, dreams, aspirations...

Does anyone know if they have published or plan to publish the results of this survey? I'd love to see it.
