Owners of the Sony PRS-505 are in for a treat now. Sony has announced that the popular reader will get a firmware update. The update includes:
DRM PDF Support
PDF Reflow for text based files
non-secure EPUB Support
Since a lot of personal ebooks (including mine) are in PDF format, the reflow for the smaller screen is a much needed improvement, to the point that the reader now looks very attractive. However, the update is only for the current version, so owners of the PRS-500 are left out of the loop this time around.
