Ahh, the site of burning man-pelts in the park, a sharp increase in aimlessness along 42nd street, and the volatilization of sidewalk excretions exhumed by the subway heat below... Spring in New York and and the unmistakable sign that Sony's PRS-500 Portable Reader
is set to launch. Er, or so we were thought
until we took another peep at the SonyStyle site which now features a "late Summer 2006" availability for the 6-inch, E Ink
reader. Ah well, by then we may have lost our Reader jones after spending the summer in the Engadget Hamptons' hideaway listening to interns whisper verse from ancient texts.
