In the market for one more cool gadget? Sony is gearing up to introduce its sliver-sized Sony Reader. It's a digital book device less than a half-inch thick and weighing under nine ounces, so it should fit nicely next to such digital brethren as iPods, Treos, and the like. The Reader holds up to 80 eBooks and can process PDF files, blogs, newsfeeds, and jpeg images. The reader is priced at $400, and Sony plans to offer nearly 10,000 titles for download from an online store.
The best part: The device is about the size of a paperback, minus the cracking spine and pesky dog-eared pages.
