New Sony Library hints at PRS-950

Igorsk posted over at MobileRead that the new version of the Soy Reader Library s now available for download. Some of the improvements listed on the download page include:

  • Support for PRS-350 / PRS-650
  • Support for new languages (Spanish, Italian, Portuguese)
  • Support for new regions (Australia, Spain, Italy)
  • PRS Device registration without Adobe ID

He also reported that the XML config files also mention the PRS-950. I haven't found it myself, but I will take igorsk at his word.

I guess this means Sony really is going to try to compete with B&N and Amazon. I wish them luck, but I frankly don't see them lasting much longer.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. If the new 950 materializes and if it includes the current version of ADE so that I can buy books at both Sony and B&N without stripping DRM, then I am likely to buy the device. I think what Sony needs to do is focus on what it does best: create desirable hardware that is a cut above the competition. There are a sufficient number of readers like myself (I think and hope) who prefer quality and will always buy quality.

  2. With Barnes & Noble just having its Chairman sabotaging Nook sales, I wonder. After the crap eInk devices I tried today that relied on buttons, the Sony 600 with touchscreen was like leaping into the future. All eBook devices should have touchscreens. That might save Sony.
