Quick thought: Sony goes epub

Sony Reader recently announced that it was dropping its own proprietary ebook format in favour of the epub format. Which got me thinking a little bit about ereaders and magazines and newspapers.

The Plastic Logic reader can handle PDF and graphics and the epub format as can be seen in this All Things Digital video

Just a little thought – Adobe‘s inDesign publishes to epub format, and the epub format is capable of supporting images. So, does that mean that Sony‘s ereader may be gearing up towards a version which would support images?

That would certainly make it a more interesting platform for media publishers.
