Excerpt: In the war for e-reader marketshare, Sony isn’t about to surrender quietly. The Japanese giant has been in the electronic-books game since 2006, releasing its first e-ink device a full year before Amazon’s Kindle debuted.
Pros: Crisp, high-contrast screen. Excellent library integration. Use USB and microSD to side-load ePubs, PDFs, and text documents. Battery lasts forever (around two months).
Cons: E-ink artifacts are ugly and persistent. No lighting options, so you’ll need a case or clip-on accessory. Suffers from ecosystem envy. Wi-Fi only. Evernote integration is confusing for newbie note-takers.
Summary: While Sony still wins on note-taking among e-readers, it falls behind the Kindle and Nook competition in many other areas, and costs $30 more. Among other things, the dropped Wi-Fi connections vexed us repeatedly.
Excerpt: The e-reader market has many excellent choices for those who want a simple and easy-to-use device for reading on the go. One example is the Sony PRS-T2 , which comes in the 6-inch form factor and is available in three different colors.
