Sony has finally gotten involved in the e-book reader price war by cutting the prices on all three of its Digital Reader models.

The Daily, Touch and Pocket Editions all now sell for $299.99, $169.99, and $149.99 respectively. Yet even with a price drop, none of these seem to be worth their costs yet. The 7-inch Daily Edition does offer free 3G access, but it doesn't offer much more than the latest Kindle for $189 nor the Nook 3G for $199.

Neither the Touch nor the Pocket e-readers support 3G and Wi-Fi, making them more difficult to stack up against the competition altogether. Even the Nook Wi-Fi seems like a better deal at $149.99. Although apparently the Pocket Edition does come with an Eat, Pray, Love bundle including a special cover and the e-book, all in time for that summer film release. Score!
