Sony revists the eBook with their Sony Reader, a 7"x5"x.3" e-book reader.  In a move from their usual ebooks they have not included only proprietary inputs, this will accept SD cards and will play AAC and MP3 files.  If you are even a little tempted, check out the review at Ars Technica to see the other new tricks that are included in this 9oz reader.

"You can tell that the new PRS-505 is from Sony because 1) it's a gorgeous piece of kit in a tiny package, 2) it has a

Memory Stick Pro Duo expansion slot, and 3) it uses proprietary DRM. But the last two points, so unfortunately

characteristic of Sony in the last decade, suggest that the company is changing-slowly. Not only does the new Reader sport

an SD card slot alongside the Pro Duo slot, but it plays AAC and MP3 files; ATRAC doesn't even make an appearance on the

spec sheet. Oh, and did I mention that the Reader is Penguin-powered?"
