Excerpt: Sony makes some of the best ebook readers, and they've earned several firsts: they made the first mainstream US E Ink ebook reader in 2006, and they were the first to employ IR touch technology that didn't interfere with display quality or drive up prices significantly.
Pros: Great UI and touch experience, can download books using reader from public library, Google and Sony store, has stylus for note-taking, excellent PDF support.
