In a blow to Amazon’s Kindle, Sony e-Reader Daily Edition owners are set to receive update bulletins of News Corp. publications such as the Wall Street Journal.
The New York Post will be available exclusively on the new Sony e-Reader Daily Edition for $10 per month. The Wall Street Journal is already available on the Kindle for $15 per month and Sony e-Reader Daily Edition owners will pay the same price, but only Sony e-Reader subscribers will have the option of receiving an update when the markets close in the afternoon (for an extra $5 per month).
The new Sony e-Reader Daily Edition, which went on sale in November, is designed specifically for subscribing to periodic news and content from newspapers and magazines. It is Sony’s first e-reader that is capable of wirelessly downloading content.
