Sony: UK ebook shop open for business
Apple and Amazon alternative
Sony UK has rolled out an e-book shop it hopes will tempt buyers away from Amazon and Apple's iTunes, the company said today.
The Reader Store UK - to give it its official moniker - offers the usual array books and bookshop features, plus a couple of daily papers: the Mail and the Guardian.
It's already tuned to the latest incarnation of Sony's Reader line of e-book viewers, and the Reader Store website has free downloads for Mac and Windows reader apps .
There's also an Android version over at Google Play , but it doesn't score very highly in the user feedback stakes. ®
