Sony Abandons E-Readers
Sony has revealed that it does not currently have any plans to develop a successor Reader model, effectively ending its efforts to successfully grab and maintain a portion of the e-reader market. The announcement comes a few months after the company made its last batch of Reader devices, the PRS-T3, outside of Japan. As such, the PRS-T3 will continue to exist as long as supplies remain within Europe. Sony Reader owners within North America can continue using Kobo for book purchases, while owners located in Japan can continue to make use of the Sony Reader Store.
