Sony Reader Daily Edition review

 

Sony's first wireless eBook reader, the Sony Reader Daily Edition offers first-rate newspaper support.

Oddly, even though the Daily Edition uses a GSM service, it doesn't currently support international roaming (which is the best reason to go with GSM technology). For now, at least, you can purchase and download content wirelessly only when you're in...
