Sony Seeks to Regain Lost Ground With Reader

“Sony may have missed the boat in the digital music player craze, but it’s going to try to regain any lost credibility with its coming Sony Reader product. The Sony Reader sounds like a compelling product in a market that hasn’t been cracked yet — digital books.

“The Wall Street Journal reported on the device Thursday, but gadget fans already knew about it from January’s Consumer Electronics Show. The WSJ article points out the obvious idea that Sony may have ceded the digital music player market to Apple but that maybe it can make headway in the digital-book market, which is, arguably, very much untapped.”
