Sony Introduces Third-Generation Reader Digital Book
Sony has announced the latest edition of its Reader Digital Book. The new model, PRS-700, will be available to consumers along with the previous PRS-505 model.
The new model has the same 6-inch, electronic-ink screen as the previous model, but with added touch-screen capability. Users are able to search terms within a document or book, create notes using a virtual keyboard and highlight text with an included stylus pen. The PRS-700 can store up to 350 digital books in its internal memory, and thousands with a memory card.
The new Reader will be available next month for about $400.
“Readers now have another choice in digital books,” says Steve Haber, president of Sony’s Digital Reading Business Division. “This new model has the eye-popping design and intuitive functionality that people have come to expect from Sony.”
Also this month, Sony will unveil a redesigned page layout, with more prominent book cover art, at Sony’s eBook store (http://EBookStore.Sony.com).
