The new Sony PRS-T3 e-Reader quietly got revealed today and is already for sale. Customers can order it from Shop e-Readers internationally, Sony Style in Canada. They come in three different colors, black, white, and red.
The Sony PRS-T3 features a six inch e-ink Pearl display with a resolution of 1024×758 pixels. It has a 1 GHZ CPU processor, which should keep things fairly speedy. There is around 1.2 GB of storage space straight out of the box for the first time. If this is not enough, users can increase it up to 32 GB via the Micro SD Card.
This e-Reader runs on Android and Sony e-Readers have a history of getting rooted and allowing for the installation of competing e-Book reading apps. You will have Evernote, OverDrive, and Facebook apps built into it. There is a stylus that comes with it, for on the fly note taking. If you use PDF files a bunch, Sony generally has the best support.
The new Sony PRS-T3 comes with an integrated case with a built in reading light. This insures that you don’t have to spend another $60 to buy one from Sony.
