For the avid book lover, an eReader is a serious must-have. And we are happy to announce today the launch of Reader™ from Sony (PRS-T2), a book lover’s dream device.
Not only is the new device, available in red, white and matte black, incredibly light and thin, it also features an enhanced, intuitive touch screen to make long-term reading a more natural, immersive experience.
Reader now offers a more intuitive touch, more paper-like page turns, improved continuous page turns and a smoother zoom in and out – because we know how important it is for avid readers to just be able to read without any distractions.
Also new to this year’s model are Facebook® and Evernote® features. Now you can post a short passage from books purchased from Reader™ Store to Facebook directly from the device along with the book cover, author and title. Also, for the first time, Reader is combining features from Evernote to allow users to save their favorite web content to enjoy any time. Pages saved with the Evernote Web Clipper and Evernote Clearly are optimized for Reader’s crisp E-Ink® display. Favorite passages can also be annotated on Reader and saved back to Evernote for viewing later on any smartphone, tablet or PC.
My favorite feature, the public library lending, is also still available on the PRS-T2. This feature provides wireless access to over 15,000 libraries in the US to enable patrons with a valid library card the ability to easily and conveniently borrow free e-books wirelessly via an intuitive, simple-to-use dedicated icon on the device. Book lovers can also continue to access and download thousands of e-books, newspapers and magazines from Reader™ Store directly to the device using a Wi-Fi® connection or via the new web store.
Lastly, as part of Sony’s collaboration with Pottermore and the Pottermore Shop (the exclusive home of the Harry Potter eBooks), Sony will offer a voucher to redeem against the first eBook in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, for free. The voucher can be redeemed at the Pottermore Shop following purchase of the matte black Reader PRS-T2.
Reader PRS-T2 is available for order now for about $129 at Sony stores and online and other authorized retailers nationwide. So, go get one for yourself or your favorite book lover. You can also get a Cover and a Cover with Light for $35 and $50 respectively. Get all the details at sony.com/news and as always, happy reading!
