Sony
Sony's new, $400 PRS-700 has a touch screen that allows users to bookmark or turn a page with a swipe of a finger.

Sony has consolidated its digital-book efforts at its North American headquarters in San Diego, relocating hardware and software operations for its Reader electronic book device from Japan.
more of the article is in the link provided, just wanted to give a little bit of the text.

Actually, Steve Haber is the Senior Vice President of the Sony Electronics Digital Imaging and Audio Division.

The DI&A division absorbed the Reader project during a re-org about a year ago.
