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.
