The device you see here is the new Sony Reader Daily Edition, which shipped this week at the not-so low, low price of $399. Reason we mention it: Today, courtesy Engadget, we discover that Sony's fleshing out its list of newspapers available for download over the device. And, yes, that newly released list includes The Dallas Morning News, along with The New York Times, The Baltimore Sun and The Denver Post and other previously announced News Corp. exclusives. The News isn't Sony-only, and it's not yet listed among Sony's e-book newspaper offerings, which go for around $10 a month or 75 cents an issue.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
