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

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.

  • Summary: The Sony PRC-600 Reader aims to take on e-book readers such as the Amazon Kindle with its own touchscreen technology. And at first glance, the Sony's excellent build quality makes it a winner.
