Just found out my parents are coming to Europe and I'll meet them (in Paris) this autumn - perhaps if there is a larger 8"-10" new Sony with faster page turns & no flashing, I would be very likely to buy it and have them bring it on over!

I would not consider it portable though (but I have the 5" jetBook for portability). It could replace my 9" netbook use as a home PDF ebook reader, depending on the price.

Agree with everything said so far - my 505 is outstanding (and Red), but if Sony somehow find a way of improving on it, they'll almost certainly sell me one

foryfork, cnet is dissin' your name.

Well, we've barely heard a peep about a new Reader, but there's been a little activity over on the MobileRead forums. Back in June forum member forkyfork wrote he heard from a manager at Books-a-Million that Sony is coming out with a new e-reader in August. The manager "mentioned that it's going to have Wi-Fi, bigger screen, and more memory. When I asked him if it would have a touch screen, he said 'no.' When asked what the price point would be, he said 'most likely $300,' which might explain why they [Sony] are trying to clear out the PRS-505's now."

Now, it's hard to put much stock in a message board comment from a random reader, especially one who goes by forkyfork, but I've heard from a few sources outside Sony that they expect Sony to have something new fairly soon. So, why not August?

Well, I guess this is my 15 minutes of fame. I better milk this for all it's worth.

My name is awesome. People don't know what they're talking about.

And for the record, this is just what I heard a manager say in a bookstore. I didn't necessarily believe him, he was just very adamant about it. And he's the manager, he would know, right?
