Sony Reader Update Teaser

Sony today dropped hints of a significant update to its Reader e-book device through an invite sent to CNET and other technology news outlets. The teaser is unspecific on details but alludes to a "new chapter" in digital reading and makes the current Reader the centerpiece of the accompanying image. The announcement would come in the evening of October 2nd and so suggests more than just a straightforward feature addition.

The Sony Reader is considered one of the most popular e-book readers on the market but has suffered lately in comparison to the Amazon Kindle, whose 3G Internet access lets it purchase books without involving a PC or nearing a hotspot. By contrast, the Sony device has no built-in wireless of its own. Amazon is also known to have taken advantage of its reputation as a bookseller to give the Kindle an unusually large catalog.
