Looks like Sony are finally going to launch a new e-ink based book reader onto the western market. The “Sony Reader” is a successor to the japanese-only Librie (which I pined for a year ago). I don’t understand why there hasn’t been more products based on the e-ink technology yet. It obviously works fine, and the rest of the hardware is pretty vanilla stuff. What’s the holdup?

Mainly because people are still reticent on reading books on an electronic support. I know a bunch who print pdfs because they prefer paper-based reading.
