NEW READER: Sony Corp. is adding a touch-screen to its cheapest electronic-book reader, the Reader Pocket Edition. While other e-reader makers have been cutting prices, Sony is increasing the price of the new model by $29, to $179.

NEW FEATURE: It uses an infrared sensor to read finger swipes or taps from a stylus that is included, eliminating the need for a special overlay that reduces clarity.

OTHER MODELS: Sony is upgrading its larger-screen Reader models as well. Sony says the new version of the Touch Edition will have longer battery life. The Daily Edition will now support Wi-Fi.
