Sony Reader App to Arrive in December

Sony, the consumer electronics giant, has announced that it will release a Reader app for its ebook store in December for both the iPhone and Android operating systems. Sony will join several other ebook store operators including Apple (iBooks), Amazon (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook), and others in the App Store. The app will offer access to ebooks purchased from Sony’s store and have standard ereader app functions like bookmarking, font size adjustments, highlighting, and more.

Sony has not yet provided any word on the app’s pricing but our guess is that it will be free to match Apple, Amazon and the other big-name ebook sellers already present in the App Store.
