New Sony e-book reader

Pre-orders have begun for the PRS505SC, Sony's latest entry into the young realm of e-book readers. It uses a six-inch, four-tone e-ink display, one said to be powerful enough that it can be read in broad daylight. An internal battery can handle up to 7,500 page turns on a single charge, and internal memory allows it to store up to 160 books, a number which can be expanded through SD and Memory Stick Duo cards. One of the primary purposes of the cards however is loading miscellaneous media files, including AAC and MP3 audio, PDF and Word documents, and a collection of image formats.

Alternately, the reader can be charged and synched through USB 1.1-2.0. The bundled software is only compatible with Windows XP or Vista. Abt Electronics is taking orders for the PRS505SC at $299.
