Excerpt: This is a quick note to mention that the review for the new Pocket Edition is now finished and can be found on the Sony PRS-350 Review page. Also, here is the link for the PDF review for the Pocket Edition. Both reviews include several pictures and a video in addition to the written review.
Summary: With a universally respected touch screen, virtual keyboard and onboard stylus note-taking, multi-language dictionary, excellent battery life and optimized portability, I really like what the Sony PRS-350 has to offer. As a business traveler that wants a no-nonsense, easy to carry machine, this would clearly be my eReader.
Pros: As portable as an eReader could possibly be without having to squint at the screen, Touch screen, Onboard stylus note-taking capability, Easy to change font size, Awesome battery life, Great format support
Cons: Just 2GB of onboard memory with no option to expand, Sony’s eBook offerings are less substantial than Amazon’s or Barnes & Nobles, No ability to play music or video, No wireless connectivity, especially at this price point
Excerpt: Sony hasn’t exactly upstaged anyone in e-reader theater. But, the company’s pocket-sized PRS-350 is looking to change that. The impetus was clear: Make an attractive, travel-sized, idiot-simple e-reader for the masses.
Sony eBook Reader Pocket Edition : Sony PRS-350 E-Book Reader Pocket Edition
7 February 2011
Summary: Unlike the earlier version of this – that I was ashamed to be seen with in public – I have been happy to be seen reading this in public. In case you are wondering why the first one needed to be used in private it was PINK.
Excerpt: No matter how slick an e-reader’s physical design, it’s hard to resist the urge to touch the screen, as you would on an iPad. But you can easily use the screen to navigate with the Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350SC.
