Sony PRS-650 Touch Edition

eReader Central
24 April 2011
  • Summary: If you’re after excellent portability without demoting yourself to a five-inch screen, and you don’t mind being a slave to your PC when it’s time to load your eReader with files, then the PRS-650 is a good choice for you.  It would be a great choice if it retailed for $30 or so less.  Your primary decision lies in whether you value Sony craftsmanship and a top-shelf touch screen above wireless connectivity.  Especially at this price point.
  • Pros: Protability, Super responsive touch screen, Bright, clear display, Exceptional battery life, Wide variety of supported file formats, Mega-expandability, with up to 64 GB using SD and Memory Stick, Best in class dictionary functions
  • Cons: No 3G or wireless; big detractor at $229 upon release, Amazon’s or Barnes & Noble offer more extensive eReader titles than Sony does, Playing music drains the battery at an accelerated rate, No protective cover included

Sony Reader Touch Edition (PRS-650)

PC Magazine
11 March 2011
  • Conclusion: The Sony Reader Touch Edition (PRS-650) is a nice upgrade to the previous model, with an improved touch screen and a few new features, but a $229 price and lack of wireless connectivity kill its appeal.
  • Pros: Sharp, high-contrast display. Responsive touch screen. Easy-to-use interface. Good file support.
  • Cons: Expensive. No Wi-Fi or 3G.

Sony – Reader Touch PRS-650

26 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Every company that produces ereaders has an uphill struggle to beat Amazon's Kindle. This is partly a matter of features but just as importantly a matter of access to a large ebook store. The Sony Reader Touch PRS-650 can't match the Kindle in the latter respect, but for those wanting to manage their own ebooks it is a very nicely put together reader.

Sony PRS-650 Touch Edition eBook Reader Review

The Gadgeteer
28 September 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s September, and that means updated readers from Sony !  I’ve been a devoted fan of the PRS readers since 2006 – first the PRS-500, then PRS-505, and the PRS-600 last year.  I’ve loved my Sonys and spent thousands of hours reading on them over the years.  Unfortunately, the PRS-600, while beautiful, eventually fell out of favor with me.

  • Excerpt: As its name suggests, the Sony Reader Touch Edition (PRS-650) eBook reader comes with a touchscreen in the form of a six-inch, 16-level greyscale e-ink display. The Sony Reader's touchscreen can be manipulated with your fingertip or the included stylus, which slips snugly into the side of the eBook reader device.

Sony Touch Reader : Sony Touch Reader PRS-650

GadgetSpeak
15 March 2011
  • Summary: Ever since taking a look at the Sony Pocket Reader I have made a conscious effort to watch out for similar devices being used in public areas instead of traditional books and other reading material. Currently these sighting stand at just two instances – admittedly over a fairly quiet period with regards to excursions.

Sony Reader PRS-650 review

Stuff.tv
25 November 2010
  • Summary: We liked the original Sony Reader. Slim, easy to use and offering support for the popular ePUB format, it was a great introduction to the magnificent world of e-readers. Fast-forward a year and the PRS-650 is here. It still has a 6in screen, but a few internal refinements mean it's faster when it comes to niceties such as flipping the page. It's also still a touchscreen, but it's not as responsive to fingers as we'd like, working better with the stylus.
