New Sony Reader T1 Leaked

Update August 31, 2011: It’s now official. New Sony Reader WiFi

Nate has the scoop: First look at the new Sony Reader PRS-T1!!!

What I can add:

– putting it in Standby mode will display the current book cover on the screen. This feature was pioneered by Kobo and is very popular with its users.

– it has a stylus (see photo of Black).

– look at the photo above to see the new way the cover attaches.

– Silver is gone, there will now be a White one (shades of Kindle!)

– the body is now all-plastic, gone is the classy aluminum.

It will be interesting to see if Sony went for a mimic trifecta — Kobo standby cover, Kindle white color — with the multitouch, doing what Bookeen did with the Orizon, allowing font resizing with pinch-zoom.
