Sony to launch Web bookstore, e-book device

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:05 pm

Sony Corp. said Tuesday it will launch an electronic book store on the Internet and start selling a device that displays e-books purchased from the store October 1, after missing an earlier unveiling in the Spring due to technical reasons.

The Sony Connect book store will carry about 10,000 books from the top six publishers, including News Corp.’s HarperCollins and CBS Corp.’s Simon & Schuster.

The launch of the store coincides with the official debut of its highly anticipated electronics book reader, which reviewers have said mimic the quality of regular paper.
