Email Announcing Sony PRS Update OK? Phishing

edit: I should have said Email Announcing Sony PRS 500 Update OK? PHISHING ???
<I don't know if it is such>

Yesterday I received an announcement of a new 500 update from "Reader Store Support"

This is now available Please click the url below for complete details:
URL : ebooks.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/138
Thank you,
Reader Store Support

I don't recall seeing this kind of message before. I guess I am hyper-sensitive to the possibility of phishing emails. I do not open emails that I fear. I first read them w/o displaying HTML content and attachments. Sometimes I do not down load emails after I see headers. The AV software I use tries to protect me from suspect URL, but I don't depend upon it.

Is Sony sending announcement like this now?

Is it not phishing. It's just a bit late.

Thanks. Glad it was OK.
The URL: was not displayed by my email reader as a URL. Guess that is because it wasn't complete URL
