Sony has announced the launch of its new eReader, which is claimed to be the lightest touch screen 6″ eReader device, Reader Wi-Fi (PRS-T1). At under 6 ounces and with a 6″ E-Ink Pearl V220 touch screen, Reader Wi-Fi is smaller than an average paperback book, can easily fit into a bag or pocket and is available in three color choices: black, red or white.

As part of Sony’s effort to support the Public Library System, Reader Wi-Fi will also offer wireless connectivity to the public library system in the US and Canada via a dedicated icon on the device to allow easy borrowing of free e-books with a valid library card.

Readers can access and download over 2.5 million titles via a Wi-Fi connection from Reader Store or shop from a wide range of bookstores and other websites that provide books in digital formats compatible with Reader Wi-Fi, such as EPUB, PDF and TXT.
