Sony Reader Comments from Sony President

A couple of points of interest from a Gizmodo report on a roundtable with Sony US Electronics President Stan Glasgow

In the light of the upcoming competition from Bookeen and Amazon, it’s interesting to see how the Sony Reader is travelling. From the roundtable notes:

The Reader is finding an audience among the military, among companies who want to load up manuals for employees, and among housewives. Educational publishers are still slow to see its value: “They are probably a little old fashioned—probably not the right thing to say—but they are a little slow to adapt,” says Glasgow, adding that he thinks they will get on track. Sony welcomes the Amazon reader and any other competition as “publicity for the category.”

Also worthy of note:

The new Sony Reader will get PDF support in January.
