Details for the Sony Reader PRS-T2 have been floating around for some time now, mostly due to an FCC filing that arrived back in early-July. That bit aside though, it looks like the ereader is just about ready for a primetime release. So far we have yet to see anything official from Sony in terms of an availability announcement — but we have seen a pre-order product listing from the folks at J&R. The retailer has the Sony Reader PRS-T2 available for pre-order, however they have yet to offer anything in terms of an expected shipping date. The ereader is priced at $130 and comes with a free Harry Potter ebook pre-loaded. Otherwise, the Sony Reader PRS-T2 has features that will include a 6-inch (600 x 800) E Ink Pearl with Clear Touch Infrared Technology, 1.3GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a weight of 5.9 ounces and a battery life of up to 2 months. A few other perks include 6 built-in dictionaries along with support for Facebook for Reader and Evernote Clearly.
