Sony Portable Reader Coming Soon

Via a mailing list: The Sony Reader is due out this spring. At 5" x 7" it’s almost as small as a paperback and uses print-like E Ink technology.

But considering the proprietary book format (Sony’s BBeB) and the fact that the Sony Connect store requires Internet Explorer—not the browser of choice for early adopters—the Sony Reader may not be the next iPod after all.
