Sony has introduced a wireless e-book reader almost three weeks after introducing two other models to challenge Amazon's Kindle. A key difference in Sony's latest model is a built-in wireless connection delivered by AT&T. The 3G connection connects Reader buyers to Sony's eBook store for purchasing digital books or subscribing to newspapers and magazines. The device is expected to be available in December 2009. Price: $399.
