Sony's next e-book reader has slipped out, courtesy of a Dutch retailer.

Bol.com subsequently pulled the page, but not before a MobileRead correspondent cut and pasted it into the forum.

Sony Reader PRS-T1 e-book reader

The Reader PRS-T1 sports a multitouch 6in, 600 x 800 E Ink Pearl display capable of presenting 16 shades of grey. It works with fingers and with a stylus, but it's not clear whether the latter will come bundled with the reader.

Behind the screen sits 2GB of Flash storage, expandable using Micro SD cards, and there's Wi-Fi connectivity on board too.

It weighs 168g.

In July, Sony confirmed its Reader family would be updated in the summer/early autumn timeframe.

Sony, of course, has said any of this in an official capacity, so we've no availability info. The PRS-T1 is said to be set to retail in the Eurozone for €165 (£146). ®
