Sony E-readers

Sony is poised to shake up the e-reader market with a pair of E-readers this month. The Sony PRS300 and PRS-600 will bring a new low-end to e-reader pricing at $200 and $300 respectively. The Sony PRS300 will feature a 5-inch display and hold around 350 e-books, while the PRS-600 will feature a 6-inch display. Available colors include blue, silver and rose. Price cutting does have its drawbacks, however, as neither model is expected to have wireless capabilities. Sony is also expected to drop prices of its e-books and has said that new releases and bestsellers will run $10. [via Wired]
