Which parts of Sony are involved with Pottermore project? Entertainment? Multimedia? Are the new Sony Android tablets being geared up for HP multimedia experience? Are we going to get a PRS-650 Deathly Hallows Special Edition with dragon skin cover included? I can only see speculation here.
Ok, we have DEFINITIVE proof that Sony ebook division is not dead and somehow Harry Potter is tied to it. If you go to ebookstore.sony.com
, Sony Reader ebooks website, the announcement for Pottermore (the JK Rowling video promo) is right on the front page. If it's not, it's rotated out but the announcement is on the left panes for you to click on.
This is more specific than having an announcement on the Sony.com website. The implication of being on the ebookstore.sony.com website is that while Sony is involved with the Pottermore initiative, the involvement/promotion will bear fruit for the Ereader division (among other parts of Sony).
So yeah, can't wait for the dragon skin cover reader.
