The new Sony PRS-T1 Wireless e-reader is the toast of the town in terms of being the lightest e-reader to hit the market in some time. It is going to have wireless internet access so you can buy books directly from Sony and other ebook stores, such as Google Books. Shop e-Readers has just opened up pre-orders internationally for this new device.
One of the pitfalls of living outside of the USA and UK is the lack of availability on many of the new e-readers to hit the market. If you live in Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or other smaller countries you often get the short end of the stick. Most of the time it takes many months to get the device sold locally in your country, if at all.
The new Sony e-Reader is running the Google Android OS, much akin to the Barnes and Noble Nook line of e-readers. It is stable and robust and many people have been claiming its very sweet indeed.
Shop e-Readers is now offering pre-orders on this device to international customers who want to get this as soon as it hits the market in October. You can choose between Red, White, and Black. Each e-Reader comes with 100 free Classic eBooks in EPUB format, to get you reading right away! They are also throwing in a free DVD Video Tutorial. This is a great way for customers new to e-readers to understand their device and learn the more advanced features. The DVD teaches you how to setup your network, buy books, load in your own books, and customize it properly. This allows you to get the most of your device with someone walking you through all of the motions.
You can Pre-Order the Sony PRS-T1 today for $199 at Shop e-Readers HERE.
