Sony Reader PRS-600

27 March 2010
  • 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
