Excerpt: The Sony Reader Daily Edition is a solid e-Ink reader
Pros: Very easy to read in a bright room, Very big screen size, Excellent customer service, Long lasting battery life (1 week), Fast transfer speed, Very fast turn-on time, Very high apparent quality, Fast to turn between pages, Small footprint, Holds a lot of books (holds 1200 with expansion for up to 50,000)
Cons: Impossible to read in a dark room, Thick, Heavy, Poor fingerprint resistance
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
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.

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).
