Sony reduces e-reader prices
According to Publishers Weekly, Sony has quietly dropped the prices on three of its e-readers. In late June, both Amazon and Barnes & Noble lowered the prices on their e-reader devices. The recent price reductions come in response to the success of the iPad. According to reports, Apple has sold three million iPads since the device launched three months ago.
