Sony PRS-505 Reader Gets Firmware Update

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.
