New Sony PRS-505 E-Book

    Last year, Sony released its first electronic reader (Sony PRS-500), created using electronic paper. This product was quite successful commercially, so it would be strange if Sony did not continue the line of new devices. Not so long ago, information about the new "book" Sony PRS-505 appeared on the Web.

    According to various information resources, the first mention (even with a description of some technical characteristics) was found on the Abt Electronics website . But, apparently, under pressure from Sony, the news was removed before the official announcement of the product.

    However, we managed to find out some details. So, the device will receive a new design, it will be equipped with a 6-inch screen, a USB interface for communication with a computer and slots for SD and MS Duo cards. In addition, the Sony PRS-505 will have the ability to play music in several common formats. The battery (the volume is not yet known) is enough to update 7500 pages.

    The release date of the Sony PRS-505 e-book is still unknown. As for the cost, according to preliminary data, it will remain at the same level (as for the PRS-500) and amount to $ 299.
