Sony Reader Daily Edition (PRS-900)

 

Integrated 3G radio for wireless book downloads. Classy design. Touch-enabled display. Supports many file formats

High price. Glossy screen coating makes dim display difficult to read. Touch screen requires very firm presses

The Sony Reader Daily Edition offers a slick design with a touch screen and wireless book downloads, but it suffers from a high price and a dim display that defeats the purpose of E-Ink technology.

Sony Tablet P review (UK edition)

 

Sony Tablet S PreviewPlayStation Store hits the Tablet S today, lets gamers relive the glory of the mid-'90sExclusive: Sony 'S2' dual-screen Android

Compelling form factor ; Dual-screen browsing works well

Apps are severely lacking ; Poor sound performance ; Low-grade protective casing ; Erratic WiFi reception

The Tablet P proves that a split-screen tablet could work, but the device needs more attention, especially when it comes to software.

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 review: Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650

 

In 2009, Sony put out the Reader Touch Edition (model PRS-600), an E Ink reader with a 6-inch touch screen that looked sleek but had a few design flaws. For 2010, Sony has delivered an upgraded Reader Touch Edition, the PRS-650. While it looks a lot...

Compact and lightweight e-book reader; responsive touch-screen interface with no glare or contrast issues; high-contrast E Ink Pearl display; zippier performance than its predecessor; integration with Sony e-book store; good battery life (up to two...

No Wi-Fi or 3G wireless means that books must be loaded via USB connection; more expensive than E Ink Kindle or Nook models; no protective cover included.

The Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-650 is a slick e-book reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface, but the glaring omission of wireless connectivity will be a deal-killer for many--especially at this price.

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 review: Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350

 

In 2009, Sony was one of the few digital reader manufacturers to release a model with a 5-inch screen--an inch smaller than the standard 6-incher found on the Nook and Kindle. Now the same model--the Pocket Edition--is back in a sleeker, more compact...

Very compact and lightweight; responsive touch-screen interface with no glare or contrast issues; high-contrast E Ink Pearl display; zippier performance than that of its predecessor; integration with Sony e-book store; good battery life (up to two...

No Wi-Fi or 3G wireless means you'll need to drag and drop purchased books from a PC or Mac; more expensive than Wi-Fi versions of Kindle and Nook; no protective cover included; Sony Reader Store isn't quite as extensive as Amazon's or Barnes & Noble's.

If you can overlook the fact that it's missing wireless connectivity, the Sony PRS-350 is a very nice little e-reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface.

Sony Reader Touch Edition (PRS-600) E-Reader Review

 

Full-featured reader with a good music player ; Excellent, intuitive user interface

A tad heavy and pricey ; Requires a PC to add content

With the addition of ePub support, the Sony Reader Touch Edition shapes up as a formidable competitor to Amazon's Kindles.

Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 review: Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600

 

Editors' Note (July 6, 2010): As of July 2010, Sony has lowered the suggested retail price of this product to $169.99.

The PRS-600 is sleeker than the Kindle; touch screen is more responsive than last year's Sony Reader; interface offers better ergonomics and is mostly easy to use; with the addition of an optional memory card (SD or Memory Stick Pro), it's capable of...

Screen is still glare-prone; screen contrast (how dark the letters are) isn't as good as what you'll find on competing models; lack of wireless access means all files must be dragged and dropped from a PC; battery is sealed into unit; notation and...

While it's an improvement to the company's previous touch-screen model, Sony's Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 is saddled with a screen that's short on contrast and prone to glare--and it lacks the wireless convenience of Amazon's identically priced Kindle.

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 review: Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300

 

Editors' Note (July 6, 2010): As of July 2010, Sony has lowered the suggested retail price of this product to $149.99.

With its sharp 5-inch screen, the Sony Reader Pocket Edition is much more compact than the Kindle 2 and fits comfortably in one hand when reading; font size is adjustable; decent battery life; Sony's eBook Library software is now both Windows- and...

No expandable memory; battery is sealed into unit; screen may be too small for some people; limited zoom function with PDF files; cannot display JPEGs or play back MP3 files; not as zippy as the step-up PRS-600; USB charging only works from PCs.

While Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 has a basic feature set, its $200 price tag, compact size, and Epub file compatibility make it an appealing e-book reader.

Sony Reader Touch Edition Review

 

The front of the Reader is made of metal, and the back is covered in a material with a subtle grip to it -- you won't have to worry about the device slipping out of your hands while you're reading. The left side of the device is just slightly thicker...

Excellent hardware ; Beautiful display ; Elegant user interface with plenty of customization options ; Touchscreen notetaking ; Zoom feature that really works

No wireless option unless you opt for the larger/more expensive model ; Must charge via computer USB port or purchase Sony charger ; Desktop software isn't bad, but it is required to purchase books from the Sony Reader store

You're definitely paying a premium since the Kindle 3 is $139 and the Nook is $149, but the Reader is elegant and a true joy to use. It supports all of the standard eBook formats and is sleeker than the other options on the market. The touchscreen adds...

Sony Reader Daily Edition

 

Wireless 3G shopping and delivery of books and periodicals, larger touch screen., Excellent size to reading area ratio, and the PRS-900 is still very portable. Supports ePUB, PDF and Adobe DRM so it works with library books and Google free books among...

Price is currently higher than the competiton (though it offers more features)

The Sony Reader Daily Edition is at the top of our favorite ebook reader list. The size and screen size make for a perfect combo of portability and reading pleasure, the wireless works well and we really enjoyed the Sony ebook store experience directly...
