Curling Up With a Good E-Book
Sony (SNE), which would provide few details about the e-reader, also has agreements with at least three major publishers to sell digital book downloads on its Sony Connect online store -- much the way Apple (AAPL) sells music and video at its iTunes Music Store.Back in 2000, a bunch of e-book readers hit the market, only to tank because the technology didn't adequately duplicate the book-reading experience.Good thing it is easy to erase your DRM eReader, Mobi and MSReader books from your harddrive! Alternatively, you can of course keep a couple of Pocket-PC's alive and breething for the rest of your life on the off-chance you would want to read books on a PPC-screen again after seeing a Sony Librie-like reader.
And as you would expect: welcome to yet another ebook-DRM, which you can use until you change hardware reader again.
Users will be able to load any .pdf file onto the reader, according to a person familiar with the device, as well as files with a special Sony e-book format. That means you'll be able to read everything from magazine articles to analyst reports to out-of-copyright books.PDF is an excellent printed-page format, not an ebook format; but it is of course nice to be able to read technical stuff on the Reader.
