New Sony Readers leaked

A poster named aafuss in the Sony Insider forums announced quite a little online discovery: the service manuals for two new Sony Readers: the PRS-300 and PRS-600. Both models should be hitting the market soon.

The PRS-300 has a 5-inch screen, while the larger PRS-700 is a 6-inch model. Sony

A couple of days ago I posted an item on how I'd heard whispers of a new Sony digital reader potentially hitting the market in August . Well, now some images and details of two new Sony Readers, the PRS-300 and PRS-600, have made their way into the blogosphere, thanks to a poster in the Sony Insider boards who simply wrote: "I just found service manuals for 2 unannounced Sony Reader model-the PRS-300 & PRS-600."

The links to the "freshly minted" PDF files have been taken down but Sony Insider preserved the information before it disappeared. (You can find the full PDFs here). According to the documents, the PRS-300 has a 5-inch display with 440MB of internal storage and no expandable memory card slots, while PRS-600 has a 6-inch touch-screen display, audio capabilities, 440MB of internal memory, and an expansion slot for MS and SD memory cards. Both models will come in red, black, and silver.

There's no mention of Wi-Fi or built-in lighting in either manual, but it's still possible Sony could offer a wireless option. If I had to take a guess on pricing, I'd say the PRS-300 will go for $199, while the PRS-600 will go for $299. No word on when these will be officially announced, but next month is a good bet.
