NY Post, Journal offer Sony e-reader deals

NEW YORK - NEW YORK (AP) — The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post are offering exclusive subscription deals through the latest electronic reader from Sony Corp.

Sony's new Reader Daily Edition, which sells for about $400, will be the only e-reader that carries the Post. Readers will have to pay $9.99 a month.

And the Journal, which is available for $14.99 a month as it is on Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle device, will have an optional after-market update for Sony subscribers for $5 more.

Both newspapers are owned by News Corp. Its chairman, Rupert Murdoch, has criticized the newspaper-reading experience on the Kindle and taken aim at Amazon for offering publishers only a third of the subscription revenue.

News Corp. and Sony officials won't say how they plan to share revenue.
