Sony Reader PRS-T2: An incremental upgrade

 

The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.

The Sony Reader PRS-T2 is a compact and lightweight touch-screen e-book reader with built-in Wi-Fi and fast page turns. It offers access to a large catalog of e-books, magazines, and newspapers via Sony's online store, plus online loaners from your...

At $129, the PRS-T2 costs $10 more than competing models that have an integrated light. The Sony bookstore isn't as extensive as Amazon's or B&N's, and the Sony Reader app isn't currently available on the iPhone and iPad

Sony Reader PRS-T2 Review

 

Sony has never been a major player in the e-book reader market. The Sony Reader line has kicked around for half a decade, but has never been able to catch up to industry leader Amazon. With the holiday season approaching, Sony's decided to give the...

Improved screen refresh and contrast ; Touch capability ; microSD support ; Facebook and Evernote support ; Two months of battery life

No light-up screen ; Higher price than competitors ; Touch interface not as user-friendly as competitors ; Screen refreshes can leave behind dirty screen ; Must tether to PC to get updates ; DRM book selection

It’s hard to recommend a product that costs more and offers less, but if you like physical buttons, don’t need a light-up screen, or want extra storage (microSD), Sony’s reader is a decent option.

Sony Reader PRS-T2

 

Sony's latest ebook reader, the Reader PRS-T2 ($129.99 direct) , is an unfortunate victim of timing. It's a nice device, shrewdly updated from last year's Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1 , with faster page refreshes and a sleeker design. But Sony came to the...

Svelte design. Crisp font choices. Memory card slot. Stylus helps with note-taking and underlining

Expensive compared with the competition. No backlight or edge lighting. Sony Reader Store still needs work. Nowhere to store stylus

The Sony Reader PRS-T2 is a nicely upgraded ebook reader that still costs too much for what you get. And without a backlight, it's virtually a non-starter.

Sony Reader PRS-T2 Review

 

To many, the war of the eReaders is between Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Though Sony has never managed to get quite as big as either of those two companies in the eReader space, it's back with a new Reader and looking to become a serious contender....

Still, aside from the price, there’s a lot to like about the device. I certainly have no major qualms with it, and in fact I really enjoyed the time I spent with it. If you can get over the price and don’t mind the fact that you won’t have a backlight...

Sony’s Latest E-Reader: Too Little, Too Late

 

In the war for e-reader marketshare, Sony isn't about to surrender quietly. Unfortunately, the company's new e-ink device isn't much of a weapon.

Sony Reader PRS-T2 Review

 

While Sony still wins on note-taking among e-readers, it falls behind the Kindle and Nook competition in many other areas, and costs $30 more. Among other things, the dropped Wi-Fi connections vexed us repeatedly. The Reader PRS-T2 also lacks some of...

Slick design, Long battery life, Free Harry Potter book with purchase

Expensive, Slow performance, No Twitter support, No audio support, Can't share books with other Sony Reader users

"That's the new Kindle, right? No? Oh, so it's a Nook."

Fast, response performance ; Evernote compatibility ; Thin and light

Evernote integration is really clunky ; Display already feels outdated ; Bottom-located power button

An ebook reader for the note-taking set

Sony Reader PRS-T2 review: same old e-reader, new and (mostly) improved design

 

Here in the states, at least, the e-reader market is ruled by two bookstore giants: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. And while it's not likely to come

Note-taking capabilities ; Dual-touch zooming ; Expandable memory

Some awkward design elements ; Image ghosting ; No more audio playback, Google Book access

The PRS-T2 is a slightly refined version of last year's Reader. There aren't many changes to report, but the new Reader remains a solid choice nonetheless.

The e-reader market has many excellent choices for those who want a simple and easy-to-use device for reading on the go. One example is the Sony PRS-T2 , which comes in the 6-inch form factor and is available in three different colors. Sony has been in...

Here's the link to my Sony Reader PRS-T2 Review. It's a couple of weeks late but that just gave me some extra time to test it out. The review includes a 15 minute video walkthrough, some pictures that turned out with a hint of light blue, and some...
