Just last week we saw the user manuals for two yet-to-be-released Sony Readers hit the web, and now the complete specs have been revealed courtesy of J&R. Of course, J&R was also quick to remove those specs, however that did not stop an eagle eye blogger over at Sony Insider from getting a good look and passing on the details.

Assuming these are accurate, then Amazon will still have one thing going for itself with the Kindle — wireless connectivity. Otherwise, these new Readers, which are the PRS-300 and PRS-600 seem like they will be respectable additions to the Sony Reader lineup.

In terms of features, here is what we can expect (according to the leak);
