Question So when is this thing coming out?

Anybody in the media or a beta tester have a feel for how mature it is? Just wondering why there isn't more info leaking out by now.

Sony has been very quiet about its Reader. I suspect this has to do with them not being able to complete their e-book store on time. Of course I wish to know more details as well!

Well, as Sony is a japanese company, that would have to be seppuku

No, seppuku would be graceful.

Sony is still offering to buy "Da Vinci Code" in it's ebooks.connect.com and to have time to read it... again before today's (May, 19) film release

The offer is actual for Sony Reader owners



Is here anyone who wishes?


How do you think - will they remove this picture from their site, well... tomorrow, or maybe couple days after tomorrow?

It is interesting that at least one very small change has been made to the Sony store page that lists the Reader.

Sony Reader "Purchase" page

It used to say "notify me" or some such. Now it says "Update Me" and takes you to a separate page for the notification. Very minor change, maybe just website
reorganization. Amazing what we can read into little things when companies treat us like the proverbial mushroom. At least it still says "Spring"....

Interesting. Now the question is: Is this part of a routine reorganization or part of a transition that includes the reader and it's ebookstore?

Time will tell, but hopefully not too much time. <g>
