When it released its latest batch of touch-screen e-readers, Sony said it was prepping e-reader apps for iPhone and Android. Well, though we don't have an exact launch date yet, we do have an exact month: December.

Those apps should go live soon, which is good news for Sony Reader fans. Of course, Amazon and Barnes & Noble have had apps out for a while, and even upstart Kobo has been in the e-reader app game for several months. No word on a Sony iPad app, but first things first. More info here.
