Sony to release new e-readers in August

There are reports that Sony is about to release a new range of e-readers in August. Reportedly these will offer wi-fi only and not 3G - as Sony needs to lower the price of their e-readers to compete with budget offerings from Amazon, B&N and Kobo.

This is Good News

This is good news because when the e-readers are finally released by Sony, it will increase the competition in the market, which will further bring down the prices on e-readers. It will ensure that no brand will be so dorminant in the market at the expense of the other ones. 

It is also important that Sony should start thinking of other additional services or bonus offers that will accompany these e-readers in order to compete favourably with what the other companies like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo are offering consumers.
