Sony is calling it quits in the e-book platform market, the company announced today (via Engadget). The move isn’t entirely unexpected: Sony has always occupied a relatively small portion of the market compared to the big kid on the block Amazon.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

So…if any of you still have the old Sony eReaders (and they were UBER cool about 20 minutes ago), you’re going to have to replenish your titles elsewhere. This makes me wonder about the fate of eBooks and eReaders in general. Are they all going to slowly die out and leave us with one format and one reader.
