Review: Sony PRS-350 E-Reader

1 week ago
  • 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.
  • Pros: Compact design is both eye-catching and travel-friendly. Touchscreen makes highlighting passages and notation a breeze. Sixteen contrast levels makes outdoor reading a cinch. Screen stays smudge-free even after numerous swipes. Battery only needs a quick bi-weekly charge.
  • Cons: Missing Wi-Fi and 3G makes it too expensive. Sony’s online store leaves a lot to be desired. Comes in robotic silver or cartoonish pink. No headphone jack means no audio books. Cheap-feeling buttons and stylus are unforgivable.

  • Conclusion: Sony's latest Reader Pocket Edition is indeed pocket-friendly, and comes with a nice touch screen and a big bookstore, but it $179 price and lack of Wi-Fi are dealbreakers.
  • Pros: Light, very compact. Responsive touch screen. Sharp screen contrast is ideal for reading in bright light. Simple navigation of menus and store.
  • Cons: Expensive. No Wi-Fi or 3G.

  • 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.
