Sony updates e-book readers

Touchscreens across the range

Security for virtualized datacentres

Sony has updated its line of E Ink e-book readers, adding brighter screens, touch technology and reducing the devices' physical sizes.

The Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 has, like its predecessor, the PRS-600, a 6in screen, but this one's the 800 x 600, 16-grey E Ink Pearl, which offers a higher contrast than the old model could and is already to be found on Amazon's latest Kindles.

The 145 x 104 x 9mm, 155g Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 has a Pearl screen too, though it's 5in in size and touch-enabled.

Both models come with 2GB of on-board memory, expandable in the case of the 168 x 119 x 10mm, 220g PRS-650 thanks to MemoryStick and SD slots. Sony said the pair come with the Oxford Dictionary of English pre-loaded and back-and-forth translation dictionaries for English and French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch.
