Sony PRS-505 eBook Reader

Sony is rumored to launch a new ebook reader this August, reports Slashgear. This reader is believed to include Wi-Fi connectivity, larger display and internal storage memory.

The new reader is expected to be a replacement for the Sony PRS-505. However, the reader has been designed on the lines of the PRS-700 but doesn’t include a touchscreen interface.

Reportedly, this news was initiated by a member of the MobileRead forums. According to the forum, a manager at the Books-a-Million disclosed the specifications of this reader. Many other sources have supported this news. However, none of them confirm the specific August launch.

The manuals state that no light or wireless connectivity support will be present in either of the model. However, it’s sane enough to wait for the official confirmation to come out on these readers. It should be noted that PRS-700 is no longer offered at the Sony Style. Still, the debate continues on whether people need eBook Readers or not. The one who requires it, will buy it.

This new ebook reader will be launched somewhere in August and is expected to be priced at approx. Rs. 14,540 ($300).
