Sony Unveils Upcoming ‘Reader Daily Edition’ With 3G Networking

Like the Kindle, it will have free always-on 3G. Considering how much I pay per month for 3G for my phone, I don’t get how the economics work out for these deals.

Update: Unlike the Kindle, there’s no web browser in the Sony Reader, so the 3G is effectively just for buying books. And several readers emailed to say that the Kindle browser is so bad that it doesn’t get used much, so Kindle owners don’t use much bandwidth either.
