Beats the Kindle!,
This review is from: Sony PRS-T1 BLACK - Ultra slim and lightweight reader with superior paper-like touch screen and Wi-Fi (Electronics)
The Kindle may be the market standard e-reader (in the UK at least), but this latest Sony has some fantastic extra features which gave it the edge as far as my wallet was concerned:
- micro SDHC support (want 34gb of space? you got it!)
- pdf reflow (this is a million times more workable than zooming and panning on the Kindle)
- notes (you can scribble all over the page with the stylus, and the notes are saved)
- epub support
If you want to, you can borrow from libraries. The screen contrast is excellent, fully adjustable, and much better than my old PRS-505. You can change font style, size, and saturation.
Some early batches seem to have had bugs that made the reader freeze or skip multiple pages at once, but this is all fixed now - if you have this problem the latest firmware, 1.0.03.11140, has fixed it.
All in all, a revelation, a joy to use, and a fair bit lighter than carrying around several thousand books in your backpack...
