KitGuru
19 September 2010
  • Excerpt: 2 Flares 2 Flares × Apple’s iPad has dominated the press this year, with incredible sales figures verifying that there is a huge market for easy to use, portable devices.

Test Sony Reader PRS-600 : quand l'ebook devient tactile

Clubic
20 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Toute considération pro ou anti livres électroniques mise à part, il faut reconnaître que le Reader PRS-600 est plutôt réussi. 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 ebook. Son interface tactile facile d'approche et fluide apporte une véritable proximité entre l'homme et la machine, le produit est beau et bien fini. Que demander de plus ?
  • 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

Sony Reader PRS-600

  • Conclusion: Comment croire que Sony et Amazon n'ont pas d'agenda caché ? Aucun des deux fabricants n'explique le lancement (sur le plus grand marché francophone) d'un outil de lecture électronique qui n'a pas (ou si peu) de lectures possibles. Ces engins sont nettement plus portables que n'importe quel netbook. Mais pour emmener quel livre où ? Les fabricants ne sont ni conservateurs de musée, ni défenseurs du patrimoine littéraire.
  • Pros: Ecran tactile, Facilité d'utilisation, Supporte les formats ePub, PDF, txt, rtf et JPEG, Affichage, Autonomie, Design
  • Cons: Pas de connectivité sans fil, Ne supporte pas le format DOC, Affichage initial JPEG flou
