Sony schedules UK e-book store opening

Ready for new e-readers, tablets

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Sony is to open its own e-book shop in the UK.

The Reader Store will allow owners of Sony's lastest Reader e-book viewer to buy content on the device itself.

The new Reader, the PRS-T1, was announced at the IFA consumer electronics show last week, and has Wi-Fi on board - the first time Sony has made an wirelessly connected Reader available over here.

The 6in, 600 x 800 E Ink screen device also sports a touchscreen and will retail for £120.

And the Reader Store will undoubtedly feature on the upcoming Tablet S, and both Mac and PC owners can access it too. We suspect it won't be long before it's running on Android on Sony Ericsson smartphones.

The Store will open in October with 100,000 titles, Sony claimed. It will also offer a selection of UK newspapers such as The Guardian and The Observer. It will also offer the Daily Mail. ®
