Sony PRS-500 Reader delayed again

Back in January, we mentioned the Sony Reader for eBooks as one slick gadget with its E Ink display. It still is slick, but Sony seems to have real problems getting it out the door:

One of Sony’s most recent sought out devices, the PRS-500 eBook reader is going to be delayed once again.

Sony is now saying a fall launch seems more likely.

No word on the reason for all the delays, but supposedly it will be ready for Holiday shoppers.
