The Sony Pocket, Daily, and Touch are all gone and in comes the new Sony Reader Wi-Fi. Sony has been in the ereader market for a while now but their newest edition comes with perks some consumers may find irresistible.
The new eReader includes built in Wi-Fi, 2GB of internal storage, a 6-inch touch-screen with E ink Pearl display, weighs 6 ounces and is only 0.35 inches thick and is most comparable to the new Barnes & Noble Nook Touch Reader.
