The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.
Sony has announced that its newest e-reader will be arriving in Australia for a suggested retail price of AU$149.
A new Sony Reader is on the way, according to documents pertaining to compliance testing on the US Federal Communications Commission website.

The Sony Reader PRS-T2 is a W-iFi-only e-reader (there's no 3G option) and it comes with 2GB of internal memory but has a microSD expansion slot for additional memory that accepts up to 32GB cards.
Sony's flagship e-reader, the Daily Edition PRS-950, is a capable, well-designed e-reader that offers both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity--but at $300, it's too expensive.
The Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 is a slick e-book reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface, but the glaring omission of wireless connectivity will be a deal-killer for many--especially at this price.
If you can overlook the fact that it's missing wireless connectivity, the Sony PRS-350 is a very nice little e-reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface.
