Not much of a surprise here, but it looks like you can officially include Sony in the e-book reader price wars
. It's now dropped the prices on its three current models: the Pocket Edition
is down from $169 to $149, the Touch Edition
drops from $199 to $169, and the 3G-equipped Daily Edition
is now $299 (down a full $50 from $349). As The Digital Reader
blog notes, however, that still leaves Sony a bit out of step with the competition -- the Pocket Edition lacks the WiFi of the similarly-priced Nook
, for instance, and the Daily Edition remains a tough sell
even at $299.
