New Sony Reader to Feature Paper-like Screen

Sony talked up its PlayStation 3 and Blu-ray technologies at CES this year, but one of the coolest things the company announced got barely any press: This spring, Sony will launch a new version of its Reader eBook hardware, and it's a gem.

Encased inside a snug and easily holdable frame that's somewhere between the size of a paperback and a hardcover book, the new Sony Reader will also support RSS and a terrific eBook library that will be sold through Sony's Connect online store. Although eBook readers haven't exactly tested well in the past, this one looks like a winner
