The Sony Reader was just announced at CES, and looks like a great new product for those of us who like words printed on paper. It allows you to read PDFs, personal documents, blogs, RSS feeds, JPEGs and even play music. It includes the ability to resize the text onscreen to whatever you want, for ease of reading. Sony seems to be doing it right this time, as they have even included the ability to use SD cards to store files on, and haven’t locked it down to their proprietary Memory Stick. Pricing is not available yet, but it’s freaking cool and if the screen quality is anything like their previous, Japan only e-book reader, I’ll be getting one. It would be perfect for reading books that are freely available online, but have relatively expensive hard copies.
If you enjoy FreshArrival, please nominate it for a Bloggie. Thanks!
