New Sony Reader
Paid Content has an article today on Sony’s new Reader as stumbled upon from a Dutch product page that had information on the new device. They find the price — guessing at between $150 and $190 US — high, which I agree with. However, European prices are substantially higher than American prices so it may be less than $150. Although those of who have been in the digital space for a while agree the sweet spot is below $100. Let’s also not forget that Sony seems to be the exclusive ebook partner for Pottermore.
There will be a hot pink version — I don’t know why Paid Content didn’t think this was awesome. I will take personal credit for this since I’ve stood in front of digital crowds for the past 7 years asking for more attractively designed Readers. Stats continue to highlight that the majority of dedicated device reader owners are women and we like attractive technology.
