The little details like what Sony's new ebook readers will look like—and how they'll differ from the disastrous legacy of the Sony Reader line—aren't there. But Bloomberg's news that Sony's revamping its line is welcome nonetheless, especially given the roll the company's been on lately.

What we do know? They'll be slightly cheaper, though probably still not cheap. They're coming as early as next month. And... and... and that's about it! But the apparent successes of the S1 and S2 tablets and new stick-skinny Vaio Z have me pretty excited to see what else Sony's got up its sleeve.

Update: Sony sent the following statement regarding the Sony Reader rumors:

It is true that Sony is committed to the Reader category and believes there is a market for both tablets and dedicated e-readers. And, since we have historically released new Readers every year since our initial launch, it is reasonable to assume we will do so again this year. However, the details about a new Sony Reader included in this article are inaccurate. We have not released any pricing, timing or features of a new Sony Reader. When we do have Sony Reader news, we will share all the details with you.
