Sony Reader app due for Android and iOS next month
Sony in a teaser has provided some of the first details of its promised Android and iPhone apps. The mobile Reader app will give users a way to shop from Sony's e-book store, with featured titles getting book covers, and the book browser itself will initially be visual. Reading itself should be as full-featured as on current Reader hardware with bookmarks, highlights and notes.
Both mobile apps should be available sometime in December. The company hasn't set out requirements or explained whether or not the iOS version will have native iPad support. Syncing should be common across all platforms.
