Amazon’s Kindle might have dominated the electronic book reader scene since its launch, but it doesn’t mean that Sony will not keep on trying to change that.

Sony Corp on Tuesday launched its first ever wireless electronic reader, the Daily Edition which features a 7-inch touch screen.

The company previously launched two lower-priced ebook readers earlier this month; both featuring touchscreens but lack wireless connection.

Sony Corp is hoping that this new addition to their line of ereaders will help them gain a foothold on the ebook market. If you remember, among the two, it was Sony who first launched an electronic reader in 2006. Amazon followed a year later and stolen the spotlight up until now.

The Daily Edition will be available in the market in December ad priced at $399. AT&T will be the device’s carrier which will use 3G connection.
