Sony Reader Daily Edition (PRS-900)
3 November 2013
Conclusion: The Sony Reader Daily Edition offers a slick design with a touch screen and wireless book downloads, but it suffers from a high price and a dim display that defeats the purpose of E-Ink technology.
Pros: Integrated 3G radio for wireless book downloads. Classy design. Touch-enabled display. Supports many file formats.
Cons: High price. Glossy screen coating makes dim display difficult to read. Touch screen requires very firm presses.

Excerpt: Lisa Gade, Editor in Chief of Mobile Tech Review , gave a very nice hands-on video review for anyone interested in the Daily Edition. As you can see above, it give a nice walkthrough of the eReader and compares it in size and screen to the Sony Touch Edition (PRS-600) and Amazon Kindle 2. She also offers a very indepth written review on her website that you can see here .
Summary: Sony clearly hopes that 3G connectivity and a large touchscreen will make the $399 Daily Edition worth the extra dough over the $259 Kindle 2 or Nook. All things being equal, these features might be enough to convince consumers. However, the slowness of the Daily Edition’s interface hindered our appreciation of the device.
Pros: Well-designed interface, Large touchscreen fits plenty of text, Easy to navigate, Elegant leather cover included,
Excerpt: (1 items) “A great read is a few seconds away,” proclaims the Sony Reader Daily Edition screen as it tries to connect to the Sony store—or to do anything else involving the unit’s wireless Internet access. Unfortunately, in my tests, I had to wait a lot longer than a few seconds. That’s too bad, because the Sony Reader Daily Edition has content that I would love to download if doing so were less of a hassle.
Pros: Wireless access to e-books and daily newspapers, Reat multimedia features
Cons: Story interface is clunky, Store interface is clunky, Newspaper support depends on AT&T coverage quality
Conclusion: The Sony Reader Daily Edition PRS-950 is my personal favorite among E-Ink ebook readers. It's light and portable yet the larger display shows more words per page (nice if you're a fast reader) and is somewhat better for PDFs. The E-Ink Pearl display is noticeably better than the older Vizplex E-Ink technology with higher contrast that requires less ambient lighting-- there's no need to turn on several lights in a room.
Pros: Excellent Pearl E-Ink display with touch, larger screen yet portable.
Excerpt: The Sony Reader Daily Edition is available only in the US, and Sony has yet to reveal when it will be be available in the UK. The Sony Reader Daily Edition was tested by our colleagues in San Francisco at the PC World labs.
