Sony Electronics previously announced that it would deliver an eBook reader app for Android in January, and the company has made good on the promise. The Reader app for Android is now available for devices running Android 2.2 or higher.

Reader is designed for reading books on mobile devices, so the interface is decidedly simple. Users can swipe to turn the page, long-press to highlight passages, and quickly adjust font size or brightness. Multiple Bookmarks and Highlights can be stored and visited by pressing Menu > Jump To. The app comes with 3 books and excerpts pre-loaded.

People who also use the Sony Reader Daily Edition will be pleased to know that they can sync their accounts and activities between the two devices. So you can read your e-ink screen at home and then pick-up right where you left off when reading your phone; reading position, bookmarks, and highlights are all carried over.
