Sony is going ePub all the way! And a third new Reader?
According to the New York Times, Sony is going to adopt the ePub-format in a new, exclusive way!
It's unfortunately not very clear what is going to happen to Sony's own BeBB-format and it's not even known if it will be supported at all by the new models 300-600. This may evolve in a bad situation for long time owners of Sony readers.
Sony seems to try to reposition itself in the marketing war that rages on between Sony and Amazon with Apple as a potentially new rival in the ring with the rumored Apple tablet.
By opening up their hitherto closed system, they should be in a nice position to boost their sales, considering that Sony does offer a very large choice of books already.
Please discuss this in our ongoing thread here.
Edit: Sony's official press release is online now here:
