That didn’t take long. The Sony Reader PRS-T1 has been out less than two weeks and it’s already been rooted. The video below is evidence of a rooted PRS-T1. It’s still in its early stages so its not exactly running smoothly, and there aren’t any directions or details, but it’s a good sign of things […]
Since I got the Sony PRS-T1 I’ve been transferring ebooks, PDF files, and even MP3 files to it over Wi-Fi using the Reader’s web browser and Dropbox, a free cloud storage utility. Dropbox works well for transferring a small number of files to the Reader. You have to download each file individually so it’s not […]

The big news yesterday was that Sony started taking pre-orders for the new Reader Wi-Fi and also put out brand new desktop software for PC and Mac computers. In doing those stories, I noticed something on Sony’s website that indicates more ereaders could potentially be coming in the near future.
Although I’ve yet to receive an email from Sony after signing up to be notified, Sony is now taking pre-orders for the Reader Wi-Fi from their website for $149 with free shipping. They have covers for the Reader Wi-Fi too. The regular covers are $34.99 and the lighted covers are $49.99. The covers come in […]
