New reader highest resolution Sony e-reader yet, charges rapidly

Amidst a plethora of other releases, Sony has revealed its new e-reader, the PRS-T3. The new reader is Sony's highest-resolution e-book device ever, boasting that a three-minute quick charge gives the grayscale E Ink reader enough charge to get through a 600-page novel, and that a full charge gives users two months of regular reading.

The reader has both physical buttons as well as touch screen functionality. While the unit comes with a protective cover, an optional cover provides illumination for night time reading.

The unit's screen is six inches diagonally, and boasts 16-level grayscale on a 758x1024 screen. Up to 2GB of books can be stored on the device, and expansion is available by way of a MicroSD card slot, with up to 32GB more space. Connectivity is provided by either USB or 802.11n Wi-Fi. The reader supports ePub, PDF, TxT, and FB2 in Russia. Graphic support is limited to JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP.

Pricing and availability date have not yet been announced.
