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.
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
Summary: Currently, the Sony Reader Pocket Edition costs $179, which falls right in between the Kindle and the Nook with Wi-Fi-only connectivity ($139 and $149, respectively) and the 3G versions of both devices ($189 and $199).
Conclusion: The Sony Reader PRS-350 is a compact, stylish and well designed device. Combining a simple design with small size means that those previously put off from buying an e-reader might reconsider.
Pros: Well designed, lightweight and compact chassis, easy to use, good format support.
Cons: No memory expansion options., Top-end Kindle might be bulkier, but it's also cheaper and comes with 3G and WiFi.
