Sony Reader Touch Edition Review

LAPTOP Magazine
3 December 2010
  • Summary: Currently, the Sony Reader Touch Edition sells for $229. As it costs more than both the Kindle ($139 for Wi-Fi, $189 for 3G) and the Nook ($149 for Wi-Fi, $199 for 3G), Sony has an uphill battle convincing consumers that touch capability and a more tightly focused reading experience is worth giving up wireless. Many consumers prefer the convenience of being able to buy books and keep their library updated without having to connect to a computer.
  • Pros: High-contrast e-Ink display, Slim and light weight, Speedier interface, Fast page turns
  • Cons: No built-in wireless, Pricey, Slow to recognize notes from stylus

Review of the Sony PRS-600 Touch Edition Reader

Best Tablet Review
6 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Last month, news of two new Sony readers leaked when someone found repair manuals for new devices called the PRS-300 and the PRS-600.  Gadget sites were rife with speculation about these devices and when they’d be released.  Sony quickly confirmed that these new devices would be released at the end of August, and they even listed the Sony Pocket Edition (also known as the PRS-300, to use the old convention of using the model number as the name) and the Sony Touch Edition...

Sony Reader Touch Edition (PRS-600)

PC Magazine
30 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Reader Touch Edition is a stylish device with a touch interface that makes navigation a snap, but a difficult-to-read screen sinks this Sony e-book reader.
  • Pros: Sleek design. Touch-screen interface. Compatible with the ePub format, which Amazon's Kindles don't support.
  • Cons: Dull screen. Books must be sideloaded via computer. AC adapter is an optional $30 accessory.

21 December 2009
  • Excerpt: (1 items) The Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 is Sony's flagship e-book reader. It offers something we haven't seen in previous Sony Readers: a touchscreen and stylus for navigating and for creating drawings and handwritten notes. Whether this innovation enhances the e-book experience is open to debate, but the overall quality of the product is not: Except for its lack of wireless connectivity for purchasing books without connecting to a computer, the Touch Edition is a...
  • Pros: Excellent, intuitive user interface, Full-featured reader with a good music player
  • Cons: A tad heavy, Requires a computer to add content

Sony Reader Touch Edition

Techworld
3 November 2009
  • Summary: Sony continues to be a class act in the digital book realm, and since it now supports ePub, it should rival Amazon in the breadth of available content. At $300 (£200), it's pricier than many other ebook readers, but it's also one of the best designed and most full featured. Unless having to connect to a PC to acquire content is a major concern for you, the Sony Reader Touch Edition is well worth considering.
