Sony’s eBook Library software, according to a Mobile Read report, will be compatible with Mac computers by end of summer 2009:
Dear Fellow Reader,
Attention Mac users! We’ve received many requests to make the eBook Store work with Apple® Macintosh® computers, and we wanted to share with you our progress on this front.
An updated version of the eBook Library Software compatible with Mac OS X operating systems will be available by the end of Summer 2009 for download to your computer to enable you to purchase, organization and download content to your PRS505 and PRS700.
Send us your email address, and we will notify you when the update is available.
Your Friends at The eBook Store
Oh, let there be great joy and rejoicing. While I’m a firm and ardor-filled lover of Calibre, I am so glad to hear that at last, Sony has awoken from the daze of the Hur? Wut? and made their bookstore software Mac-compatible. THANK THE DIGITAL FAIRIES.
Now, we have more options. I’m a big fan of lots of options. I can’t wait to see the new software and test it out.
ETA: I have confirmed via email to Sony bookstore representative that it is indeed true, but the closest they’ll come to date of commitment for now is “summer 2009.” Stay tuned for details!
