Sony introduced two new e-book readers on Aug. 5 that will be available in late August. The Reader Pocket Edition features a 5-inch screen, a physique trim enough to slip into purses and shirt pockets, and a price of $199. The larger Touch Edition, priced at $299, has a 6-inch touch-screen that's handy for navigating the device, underlining passages and writing notes in the margins of e-books. Sony additionally announced it had lowered the price of best-sellers and new releases to $9.99. The two Readers come to market just as Amazon has dropped the price of the Kindle 2, Plastic Logics announced it has a model with a nearly 10-inch screen in the works, and even Apple is expected to join the competition soon.
