Next stop for the Sony Reader roll-out: Germany

Sony’s ebook reader launches into another international market next month, less than a year after its foray into the UK market.

The German launch is scheduled for March 11 and will include availability of several thousand ebooks in German. The Sony Readers will be sold through the national bookstore chain Thalia as well as Sony Style outlets and other bookstores. No mention of electronics chains so maybe the Reader is too hard a sell for general gadget stores at this time?

The Sony PRS-505 Reader will sell in Germany for 299 Euros.

Here’s the translated version of the story in German publication BuchMarkt.
