The Amazon Kindle better watch out because Sony has just announced the Reader Daily Edition. It has a 7 inch touch 16 level grayscale display. You might say that it’s just another ebook reader, so who cares. But this reader offers 3G connectivity via AT&T, Mac compatible Library software and the ability to wirelessly check books out of local libraries for FREE.
Sony’s new Library Finder application offers Sony eBook Store visitors access to their local library’s collection of eBooks. Thousands of libraries in the OverDrive network offer eBooks optimized for the Sony Reader and now visitors can find these libraries by typing their zip code into the Library Finder. Through the selected library’s download website, visitors can check out eBooks with a valid library card, download them to a PC and transfer them to their Reader. At the end of the library’s lending period, eBooks expire, so there are never any late fees. The Reader Daily Edition will be available in December for $399.
