Forthcoming Sony Readers PRS-300, 600

Some careful rummaging through Sony’s site has resulted in unearthing some images and PDF manuals that Sony is planning to improve on its e-book readers PRS-505 and PRS-700. Naturally enough the information on models-to-be-expected is sparse, but the manuals yielded a bit or two. Thus, the models, tentatively called PRS-300 and PRS-600, will be targeted at the US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

Sony Readers PRS

The PRS-300 is reported to go sans audio output and memory card slots, with 440MB storage and a 5-inch screen. The more sophisticated PRS-600 will be featured with audio and memory card outlets and will allow music playback. It will have a 6-inch touchscreen and 380MB of memory.

Wi-Fi connection and built-in backlighting will not feature.

Market information is not out yet, but we can safely draw deductions from the current prices: $280 for the PRS-505 with a simple 6-inch screen and music playback, and $350 for the PRS-700 that has a touchscreen.

Three colors are mentioned – black, silver and red.
