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: Oddly, even though the Daily Edition uses a GSM service, it doesn't currently support international roaming (which is the best reason to go with GSM technology). For now, at least, you can purchase and download content wirelessly only when you're in the United States and within range of a decent AT&T signal.
Excerpt: Touchscreens make everything better and more intuitive, right? Not so fast: Sometimes adding touchscreen technology has drawbacks that seriously outweigh the benefits. Exhibit A: the Sony Reader Daily Edition. It’s an e-book reader that, like most others currently on the market, uses an E Ink screen.
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.
Conclusion: The Sony Reader Daily Edition is at the top of our favorite ebook reader list. The size and screen size make for a perfect combo of portability and reading pleasure, the wireless works well and we really enjoyed the Sony ebook store experience directly on the device. The Reader is attractive and it comes with all the goodies in the box so you won't be shelling out extra to get basic accessories.
Pros: Wireless 3G shopping and delivery of books and periodicals, larger touch screen., Excellent size to reading area ratio, and the PRS-900 is still very portable. Supports ePUB, PDF and Adobe DRM so it works with library books and Google free books among others. Attractive and sturdy design with a metal bezel. All the goodies are in the box, even the separately packaged zipper case. On-device bookstore experience is excellent and downloads are quick. Reliable daily deliv...
Cons: Price is currently higher than the competiton (though it offers more features).
