Sony quits selling e-readers

Sony has announced it’s to give up selling e-readers due to failing to compete within a crowded market.

This follows the company’s decision earlier this year to stop selling e-books to customers, directing them to competing service Kobo.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Today’s announcement means the Sony PRS-T3 has become its last e-reader model to be made.

You can’t help but notice that as Sony quits the industry, Amazon’s Kindle remains on top with a 90 per cent market share.
