Sony eBook Reader Review Request
Miami Beach, United States

I received an interesting e-mail today from a marketing agency hired by Sony:

Hi Craig,

I was visiting your blog, Travelvice, and thought it had a lot of great articles and content regarding a traveler's lifestyle. I'm with a marketing agency that is working on a product that you might be interested in reviewing.

Sony has asked us to help them identify key leading independent voices in the online community to test out the Sony Reader Digital Book. The Sony Reader is a great eBook device that is beneficial for those who travel for pleasure or business. It's a perfect travel companion that allows you to carry all your favorite books in one hand while providing a long battery life and entertainment to last through your longest flights.

To learn more about the Sony Reader, please visit the product page on the Sony Style site.

If you are interested in reviewing the Sony Reader, please let me know and I will send a unit for you to "test drive."

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks so much,

Jenny Park-Chan

I wrote Jenny back, telling her that the device had piqued my curiosity (in terms of size, functionality, and battery life), and that I'd happy to evaluate it and review it publicly. She responded that she'd overnight me a unit.

Neat.
