Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Sony has updated its Reader e-book gadget, a revised version of last year's model with added 'advertise for publishers for free' social networking functionality to encourage Facebook chums to buy books.

Sony PRS-T2 Reader

The PRS-T2, follow-up to last year's PRS-T1, continues to sport a 6in, 700 x 800 E Ink display with a touchscreen overlay and anti-glare cover, all in a skinny case and weighing less than 170g. It's 9.4mm thick. Communications comes courtesy of Wi-Fi.

There's 1.3GB of storage for e-books, but you can add Micro SD cards of up to 32GB in capacity if you require more room.

Sony claimed the battery's good for two months' reading on a single charge.

Sony PRS-T2 Reader

Available today in the States - there's no word yet on UK availability - the PRS-T2 will set you back $130 (£82), which also gets you a gratis copy of the first Harry Potter book.

Sony is also pitching $50 (£32) covers with integrated reading lights. ®
