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.

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.
