NewspaperDirect Brings 1,400+ Periodicals to Sony Reader

Yesterday, NewspaperDirect, the newspaperdirect.gifinternational periodical distributor based in Vancouver, announced it would make its entire catalog of periodicals from all over the world, including more than 1,400 titles, available for Sony’s line of eReaders. This news comes hot on the heels of the newly available Sony Reader Daily Edition (we’ll have more on eBN readers’ responses to the new device later).

According to a press release, NewspaperDirect’s catalog–which includes publications from 93 countries in 44 languages, and major US papers like The Washington Post and USA Today–will be available to Sony Reader users tomorrow through NewspaperDirect’s PressDisplay platform. An app designed for Sony customers will be made available this week.

This announcement, along with the release of the Daily Edition, adds to the growing list of good reasons to take Sony seriously–Sony’s devices are getting cooler (not Cool-er) by the minute.
