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...

  • Excerpt: As much as we like this e-reader’s solid build and responsiveness, these pluses can’t outweigh the glare problems that plague its touch screen.

PC Magazine
7 July 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.

Si son contraste d'affichage en retrait n'incommode pas votre vue, et que son prix élevé n'effraie pas votre porte monnaie, vous aurez alors toutes les raisons d'aimer cet...
  • Pros: + Interface tactile fluide, + Ergonomie simple et ludique, + Fonctionnalités livre et annexes complètes, + Nombre de formats reconnus
  • Cons: - Manque de contraste de l'écran, - Autonomie moindre / Prix, - Pas de sans fil

  • Conclusion: Aan veel dingen merk je dat e-readers nog in de kinderschoenen staan. De Sony Touch Edition PRS-600 is mooi plat, maar het ontwerp van de e-reader doet een beetje ouderwets aan. Daarnaast is het een zwart-wit scherm.
  • Pros: Goed leesbaar scherm, Eenvoudig in gebruik, Diverse functies
  • Cons: Geen wifi, Zwart-wit scherm
