Sony is taking pre-orders for the new Touch (PRS-650) and Pocket (PRS-350) Edition readers. The new readers will have “optical touch screen technology customized for Sony and licensed from Neonode Inc.” This touch screen technology is supposed to be crystal clear, so I’m hoping the 650 model won’t be as reflective as the 600 model I reviewed last year. The Touch model is selling for $229.99, and the Pocket Edition is selling for $179.99. Both models show a ship date of “on or about September 16.” I’ve ordered a Touch Edition in red (of course!) that I’ll be reviewing soon.
