updated 06:45 pm EST, Mon December 21, 2009

Device optimized for newspaper content

Sony on Monday announced that its flagship Reader Daily Edition has begun shipping. The device features a seven-inch touchscreen optimized for newspapers and magazines, while a 3G connection utilizes AT&T's wireless network to download content from Sony's Reader Store.

Daily Edition owners initially will have access to the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and Chicago Tribune. The company is also set to offer the New York Post, Boston Globe, International Herald Tribune, and New York Times, among others.

The Reader Daily Edition carries a $400 price tag, with pre-orders already shipping. Sony's online store currently lists the device as on back-order for new customers, however.
