This month’s newsletter from Sony reveals new Sony Reader apps for iPhone and Android that are set to be released in December. Sony has also added a new Mobile Apps link to their Reader Store.
The Reader apps grant access to the Sony eBook Store for purchasing ebooks and for downloading and reading Sony’s ebooks from iPhones and Android phones (no mention of an app for iPad). Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t look like it will allow for side-loading ebooks from other sources, but there’s not a lot of details at this point.
For features, the apps both have adjustable font sizes, and will be able to add bookmarks, highlights, and notes. The apps use “Reader’s page sync technology” to sync between apps and the Sony’s desktop software.
The iPhone app requires iOS 4 or higher, and the Android requires Android 1.6 or higher.
