Summary: Having owned a previous Sony Reader and a Kindle, the Daily Edition offers a lot of features. It has a 7" screen, removable battery, and expansion memory slots to name a few. Turning pages is fast. The major downside is that the screen suffers from glare. I'm not sure why Sony's RD & QC Dept. didn't see this as a problem. I would also like to see future Readers to utilize Swype on their touch Readers.
Pros: AC Adapter, Durable, Easy Controls, Great form factor, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Multi Expansion Cards, Removable Battery, Storage Case
Summary: While I am still not completely convinced that an e-reader is necessary, I have found this one to be useful while traveling and while waiting to get my car serviced. Yes, there is some glare but I had very little trouble under artificial light in tilting the reader slightly to compensate. It is worth the trade-off in order to have the touchscreen.
Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
