New Sony e-readers pass FCC testing

Sony’s still making e-readers? Apparently so. The Digital Reader reports Sony’s latest, the PRS-T3, has just passed FCC validation. Details are sparse on the ground. It’s got Wi-Fi, there are two models (one of which may be touchscreen), and one report mentions Bluetooth. Nate Hoffelder figures it’s got about a 6” screen, and will probably launch in the US and Europe in August.
It’s nice they’re still out there trying new things, even if the most you can really say about them is that they can be used as evidence in anti-trust trials that there really is “competition” to Amazon (for some value of competition). Still, the Sony I tested and reviewed a few years back wasn’t a bad e-reader at the time.
