Sony confirms e-reader update imminent

Reader line to get wireless comms at last?

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Sony has regularly updated its e-book reader line - aka Reader - in the late summer/early autumn timeframe so it comes as no surprise to learn it'll be doing so again this year.

Confirmation of the successor(s) to the 6in PRS-650 and the 5in PRS-350 - respectively dubbed the Touch and Pocket Editions, even though they both have touchscreens and both fit in (large) pockets - comes from Phil Lubell, the Sony US executive in charge of the Reader line, by way of Bloomberg.

Sony Reader PRS-350

Lubell said the new model(s) will debut in the States next month and feature "hardware and software improvements" over their predecessors.

Wi-Fi and perhaps 3G connectivity are among the changes, we suspect, since wireless is the one thing Amazon's Kindle does that Sony's Reader doesn't. A less asymmetrical design would be nice too, Sony. ®
