Vote for the Sony Reader!

Engadget has opened voting for the 2006 handheld of the year award. It's time to stand up and be recognized! Even though the Reader has been well-received and exceeded expectations, the mainstream press might make you think that the Sony Reader can't get any votes. Not true!

The Sony Reader is doing pretty well - even if only in third place at the moment. It's up against the Microsoft/Intel publicity machine - with some highly publicized UMPCs, backed by Bill and gang. Yet the Sony Reader has started out strong.

Here's our chance to publicly demonstrate how many people care about e-book readers, and indicate that there's a real market to be reached with new products like the Reader. So how about adding your vote to show them we care, and see if we can bump that total up just a bit!

What are you waiting for? Cast your vote here with a simple click! Voting ends April 15th, 2007.

Thanks to kenbaldwin for spotting the news!

Interesting as one-half of the entries are from Sony. At the time I cast my vote the Reader was in 5th place but the space between 1st and 5th was not a lot.

Know what! Even if the reader does not win it is still up there in the top class!

I can still vividly remember the snubnosed remarks that used to dot the Engadget site, posting the reader as a failure.

This is really a sign of the strength of the ebook. When you look through the negative comments pertaining to the demise of ebook reading devices, you can feel the presence, the workings of a big unstoppable machine, the ebook is here to stay!

It is a very positive note that it was selected as one of the top six to be voted for.

It's come up, on occasion.

Hasn't been much actual movement on it yet, though (in almost a year).
