NY Times Launches E-Reader Beta

The New York Times on Tuesday unveiled a public preview of software that duplicates the printed newspaper’s format on a computer screen.
Dubbed “Times Reader,” the Windows software also lets users update to the latest news and then read the day’s issue offline. Other features include print, save, and e-mail tools; auto-sizing so the display formats to the screen size and resolution; and support for the upcoming Windows Vista.  Windows XP SP2 users must also download the .Net Framework 3.0 to use the Reader and you can get that at Microsoft’s web site.  You can download the reader here.  I downloaded and installed it and it is a very nice reader for viewing the Times news.   The beta test runs until Vista is released and is free.  The Times has not stated pricing or if they will charge.
