A while ago, there had been speculations that certain hints indicate Sony will soon be launching a successor to its ereader family, namely Sony PRS-T2.
And now, this seems to be happening.
The good news for users of Sony’s ereaders is that the ereaders will officially be released by Sony in the coming weeks. This is an ereader refresh from Sony after quite a while and naturally, this is going to overjoy the avid users of Sony’s ereaders.
Rest assured that Sony has all plans of staying in the ereader game. The company has been investing substantial sums to this end.
Not only has it spent a lot of money in launching its own European eBook store, it is also changing the web design across the board so as to make it easier for the users to navigate through the site.
Essentially in PRS-T2, Sony is seeking to keep up with the hardware refresh across other vendors. So we can expect the new ereader to host some new hardware as well as a software which will provide the users with a robust experience.
One of the most lucrative features on PRS-T2 would be that of Overdrive.
With the help of this feature, users can borrow library books they want to read right on their ereader. Moreover, Sony has also hugely improved its PDF support on the ereader which would allow for a far better reading experience for the users.
There are also rumors that Sony will be including EPUB 3 support on the device, thus allowing the company to put its feet into the door of the Asian markets. EPUB support essentially allows complex symbols as well as Japanese language to be displayed on the ereader.
Currently, pre-orders for PRS-T2 are available with Shop e-Readers. The company is offering to ship the pre-orders to regions including Australia, Europe and New Zealand.
