Sony sent out an email today announcing a new update for the Sony PRS-950 ereader. I'm actually surprised at some of the new features listed. This update adds page sync and active web links, both of which should have been in the original firmware IMO.The improvements include:
- Purchased Content
Adds a "Purchased Content" icon to the Applications screen to allow you to easily access previously Purchased Content via your Sony Reader™ Store account and download it directly to your PRS-950.
- Reader Store Notifications
Receive recommendations from the Reader Store delivered to the Reader Home screen.
Note: The option to receive notifications can be turned off in the General Settings menu.
- Page Sync
Synchronizes reading information such as bookmarks, highlights and text notes between two or more Reader Daily Edition™ (PRS-950) devices.
- To start using the sync function, turn on Page Sync in the Application Preferences screen.
- Synchronizing across your smart phone devices with applications such as Reader™ for iPhone® will be coming soon.
- Capture Screenshot
Take screenshots of the Open Browser or Handwriting Viewer screens and save them as picture (jpeg) files which you can view in the Pictures application. You can also set a captured screenshot as your Standby Image.
