Retailer EOL hints at Sony Reader Touch update

Sony's plans for new Reader models were backed on Monday after well-known online retailer B&H posted that the Reader Touch Edition is now "discontinued." The label hints that Sony is near having cleared stock and ready to introduce new models. Other models might not yet be ready, as the 3G-aware Daily Edition is only listed as "temporarily out of stock" while the Pocket Edition is still in healthy supply.

At Sony's own official store, the Touch Edition is already on sale at $170, down from its original $250. Competition from Amazon and Barnes & Noble may be the chief factor, but price drops often occur when a company hopes to clear out stock.

The range is due to go all-touch on its next update and should mostly focus on improved displays with better visibility as well as faster response times. Longer battery lives and a much larger 2GB of built-in storage will define the upgrades as well. [via The Digital Reader]
