Sony Reader Daily Edition, PC get periodicals
Sony in a second update this week provided the magazines and newspapers that will be available for a subscription through the Reader Store. Besides the New York Post and Wall Street Journal, both the 3G-capable Reader Daily Edition and Sony's Mac and Windows software will get daily downloads of major papers like the Boston Globe, the International Herald Tribune, the New York Times and 10 others. A handful of magazines such as Barron's and Reason will also arrive as they would in real life.
The electronics creator hasn't said what pricing will be for its digital copies, including whether or not there will be any changes in price for downloading over 3G. Sony still claims to be taking pre-orders for the device despite the planned December launch window nearing its end, and hasn't said how close it will be shipping the more advanced touchscreen viewer.
