Sony is Working on Another Large Screen eReader

For a company that got out of the ebook market, Sony just can’t quite seem to let go of making ereaders with E Ink screens.

Sony’s 13.3-inch DPT-S1 PDF Reader Now Sells From B&H

Awhile back Sony stopped selling their specialized $799 E Ink PDF Reader from their website. The device is still listed but the description says that it’s only available from select partners.

Sony DPT-S1 PDF Reader Now $200 Cheaper

Sony’s specialized 13.3-inch E Ink PDF reader keeps getting cheaper and cheaper all the time. The price just dropped by $200, and that’s after a $100 price decrease last October.
