Sony in danger of fumbling its big e-reader shot

Sony says it can't guarantee shipments for its latest e-readers for the holidays and that could be a big issue as it tries to compete with Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's nook.

Sony says it can't guarantee shipments for its latest e-readers for the holidays and that could be a big issue as it tries to compete with Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's nook.

Here's all you need to see from the SonyStyle store:

When Sony launched its latest e-readers in August the company said it would be set to meet holiday demand. Now that the demand is here Sony isn't so sure about the supply.

Barnes & Noble is also cutting it close for Christmas deliveries, but says it can hit the Dec. 18 shipment date.

If Sony and Barnes & Noble struggle it will be a big win for Amazon's Kindle.
