Sony’s Reader Store Wakes Up, Lowers Price

Yesterday, I shredded Sony’s Reader Store for its outrageous pricing of The Iron Duke. They had it for US$15.00, while both Amazon’s Kindle Store and the Kobo Store had it for US$9.99. See: Sony’s Reader Store Extortionate Pricing.

Because I am mean and follow-up, I checked the Reader Store three times today too!

Results: US$15.00, US$15.00, then US$9.99!

They must have been in a sort of panic over there to fix the price because now it has two listings!


Click = big

Now if only someone would show that ADD asshat, Howard Stringer, how an eBookstore should be run — maybe he’ll finally see he should stop chasing OLED and 3D unicorns and attend to existing businesses to make them right.

Sony has absolutely killer hardware in their new line of touchscreened Readers — especially that new Pocket Touch. I don’t want this to be the end of the line for them!
