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

 

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.

Note-taking capabilitiesDual-touch zoomingExpandable memory

Some awkward design elementsImage ghostingNo more audio playback, Google Book access

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 the Kindle or Nook.

The ; 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 local library. It...

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

 

It's one of those great footnotes of tech history: the first-gen Amazon Kindle, introduced in November 2007 , is really a me-too device. It hit the market more than a year after the Sony PRS-500 -- which also wasn't the first e-book reader available,...

Sony Reader PRS-T2

 

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.

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.

Reader Store, Other Features, and Conclusions For shopping and downloading books, you get built-in Wi-Fi; there's no 3G option. Sony's Reader Store still trails what Amazon and Barnes & Noble offer. It's not terrible by any means, but it offers nowhere...

Review: Sony Reader (PRS-T2)

 

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

 

An ebook reader for the note-taking set

Fast, response performance ; Evernote compatibility ; Thin and light

Evernote integration is really clunky ; Display already feels outdated ; Bottom-located power button

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....

So, by now you know that the Sony Reader PRS-T2 comes packed with a lot of nifty features. That’s all well and good, but it doesn’t matter much if you have a device that isn’t comfortable in use. Thankfully, the Reader PRS-T2 succeeds there as well,...
