Sony Reader Daily Edition fights Kindle with 3G – Cell Phones & Mobile Device Technology News & Updates | Geek.com
Despite a crummy design, Amazon’s Kindle revolutionized the stodgy, slow-evolving field of e-book readers through one huge innovation: always on wireless slurping of books, magazines and blogs no matter where you are, for no additional fee.
No surprise then that Sony recognizes that it needs to get wireless into its line of Readers to be competitive with Amazon. Just a few weeks ago, they said: “We will be bringing a wireless product to market. The particulars of ‘when’ and ‘how much’ will come later. Wireless is important and wireless is coming from Sony.”
Now, it looks like Sony’s ready to deliver with its Sony Reader Daily Edition, and wireless is a big part of it. Sony’s Reader Daily Edition will allow wireless book slurping in over 8,000 locations, with more on the way. 3G will be provided by AT&T.
