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...
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.
Conclusion: There have been several questions about making collections in the Sony Reader software. The above picture is a screen capture showing the bottom of the left frame in the Sony Reader software. I have no reader attached at the time. The Plus-sign key used to create collections is shown circled in red.
Pros: Compact and lightweight, Good screen clarity, Increased internal memory for books compared to previous Sony reader models, Can add up to 32 GB of additional memory using a SD card and a Memory Stick PRO Duo, Can make text or hand-drawn notes inside books, Can read a wide variety of ebook formats,...
Cons: Screen is very reflective, English-only dictionaries available now, No case provided
Conclusion: There's a lot to like about the Sony Reader Touch Edition; it has a responsive and high contrast Pearl E-Ink display, is easier and more intuitive to use than the Kindle and Nook thanks to the very good touch UI and it has a classy, compact design.
Pros: Touch interface is a pleasure, ePUB format support for library books.
Cons: No wireless, more expensive than Kindle and Nook.
