Sony Reader app hits Android Market

updated 05:05 pm EST, Fri January 21, 2011

Sony Reader for Android now ready

Posting somewhat behind schedule, Sony on Friday put up the Android version of its Reader app on Android Market. The app fits the pattern of other e-reader apps and lets readers buy, download and read ePub or PDF books. It will sync any downloads with Sony's other apps, such as the future iPhone version or with a Reader Daily Edition.

Owners can bookmark and highlight text much as they would on other versions, as well as change font attributes.

The initial version has relatively steep requirements and needs Android 2.2 or higher. Sony hasn't said how soon iPhone owners could expect their version to arrive, nor whether it would add support for other platforms. [via The Digital Reader]
