New Sony Reader is Like a Digital Library On Demand (Mashable)

Following the launch of two new e-ink based digital book readers earlier this month, Sony today announced a new eBook reader with a wireless connection – something that’s been notably lacking in their eReader lineup.

The Reader Daily Edition has a 7-inch touchscreen and connects wirelessly via AT&T’s 3G cellular network, but there’s a catch – with no built-in web browser, the only connection the device will be making is to the Sony eBook store.

However, one other notable addition to the eBook store itself is about to make that connection a lot more valuable. In partnership with thousands of public libraries and Overdrive.com, Sony Readers will be able to use a new free library finder service that allows you to check out digital ebooks and other content from your local public library.
