Having already confirmed the release of two new (and heavily leaked) eBook readers, Sony this week unveiled a third new model boasting 3G connectivity and a touch screen.
The new ‘Daily Edition’ device joins the Pocket Edition and Touch Edition to offer a range of products likely to suit all budgets and buyers.
“We firmly believe consumers should have choice in every aspect of their digital reading experience,” said Steve Haber, president of Sony’s Digital Reading Business Division.
Sony says the new reader, which will be available this December in the US, will allow owners to “browse, purchase and download books as well as select newspapers and magazines when and where they want” without any ongoing subscription fees.
The Daily Edition has a 7″ touch screen which can display “about 30-35 lines of text” in portrait mode.
