Sony's New Ebook Readers

I've been in Michegan and Chicago, hence the radio silence, but for now here's a story from the NY Times about Sony's new ebook readers which are supposed to go on sale by "the end of August". There will be a $300 touch-screen successor to the PRS-700 and a $200 successor to the PRS-505. That latter price point could kill off the $250 Cool-Er Reader and the (still AWOL) BeBook Mini.
