Sony Reader now allows pdfs – expanding choice of ebooks

Through a recent software upgrade, Sony now allows Sony Readers to read .pdfs, instead of just their proprietary ebooks. This is a great move, opening up the ebook world for Sony Readers. It means that there are a wealth of ebooks that people who own Sony Readers can now read–and one of the places to head to, if you’re looking for current ebooks, is eBooks.com, which has one of the largest selection of commercially published books available in Adobe .pdf format. When I went to their site, I immediately spotted a popular YA novel for sale in .pdf format–Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.

I think Sony opened up their software in order to compete with the many new eInk eBook Readers that are offering more open ebook standards, and I think this is a good thing. What do you think?
