Sony Reader for iOS and Android Coming in December

As the above image suggests, the Sony Reader apps for iOS and Android are coming in December. You will be able to sync with your Sony Reader account, check out books from your library, and all the other things you’d expect from a mobile reader app. Sony is a little behind, considering the Nook and Kindle apps have been around quite a while. It is good to see Sony make an attempt to catch up.

Sony currently offers software for PC and Mac, which you can download here. The mobile apps will offer similar functionality. You can access your books whether you purchased them from the reader, website, software or iPhone or Android app. The apps will also let you bookmark, highlight, take notes, and adjust font sizes. Check out the screenshots below.

It looks like Sony’s Reader apps will be quite useful, but Sony has a long road ahead. It must now convince the Nook and Kindle app customers to make the switch. I think the e-Library lending options help give Sony a fighting chance, but we’ll have to wait and see.
