version 1.1.01.25200

I have had my Sony PRS-505 for 2 weeks now. The first day I went to Sony's website for firmware update and found my version was a higher number than what they offered.

What is up with that? What are the differences?

The consensus here is that the differences are negligible - the most obvious one is a different date format. Presumably, that's the reason why Sony never bothered to put these "new" firmwares up for download.

Why would a US firmware need a new date format? I think you mean the UK firmware.

Well, my guess was a new copyright date! :-)

So Sony didn't tell a soul what the differences are? I just wondered in case I had to reload firmware with the older version. Like if I tried to change fonts and "brick" the reader.........I would have to reload an older firmware version. Makes me not want to try then.

On the other hand, as there's no perceivable difference, what difference would it make! :-)
