Sony Reader Daily Edition Shipping; Beats Nook, Seen as Challenge for Amazon Kindle

December 24, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Sony Reader Daily edition, which had been available for pre-order up until now, has finally started shipping. Tipped to be the biggest rival to Amazon’s Kindle e-reader, the Sony Reader would come with a 7 inches wide full touchscreen.

Expected to offer a range of features, the Sony Reader user would get to have wireless access to Sony’s Reader Store, access to publications of the likes of The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune. Wireless access would be provided by AT&T’s 3G mobile broadband network. Sony has said that the device has been built to operate in landscape and portrait modes, making it convenient for the user who travels a lot.

If you are someone who had already placed your order for the Sony Reader before December 20, you are sure to get your device in time for Christmas. For the others, January would dawn with news that the Sony Reader has arrived to charm.

So now Amazon has something to fear for, we guess. With Sony Reader Daily Edition making its way fast to user hands and offering a range of content on an immensely tempting touchscreen, it is sure to be a worthy competitor for Kindle. Let’s wait and watch what is going to be on show in the marketplace, a few days from now.
