Waterstone’s is Selling Off Sony Reader Touch Edition Demo Units

A few weeks back I posted about the disappearance and apparent cancellation of Sony’s 6″ eReader, the Touch Edition. My story was roundly denied by Sony, but it looks like I might be right.

There’s a report over on MobileRead that Waterstone’s, an UK bookstore chain, is now selling off its Touch Edition display units on eBay. If this is true then it is a sign that something has happened to the Touch Edition. Stores do not sell of display units unless they know for sure that they will never sell the gadget again.

On the other hand, it is still listed on the Waterstone’s website and some stores do still have it in stock. Who knows.
