This review is from: Sony PRS-T1 6" Ultra-Light Reader with Wi-Fi and Enhanced Touch Screen - White
Pros: Lightest e-reader. Almost all screen. IR-based touch, contrast is not affected by an extra "touch" layer. Open format, allows the use of epub, txt, and pdf.
Android based, can be modified to allow the use of certain Android apps, including the Amazn Kindle app.
Built-in wifi, web browser. Web pages with a lot of text look great.
Long life battery when wi-fi is turned off.
The refresh rate is very fast, though it is on every page, as opposed to the Kindle which I believe refreshes every sixth page.
Cons: Background is not white, it's a light gray. Text is not black, it's a dark gray. Overall it's easy to read in bright light, hard to read in low light because of the low contrast. A little harder to read than a traditional paperback book.
Wi-Fi runs down the battery very quickly. You can turn it off when not in use.
Other Thoughts: I picked this up on sale for $79. It's a great device at this price. Copying books over was simple, works well on both PC and Mac.
One odd thing is I noticed I read more because there are less distractions compared to my iPad. I'm more likely to just sit and read with this.
It's all plastic with a rubberized back and light, so I don't feel the need for a case, and have no problem just setting it down quickly like a book. I'm not worried about protecting it like I am with my iPad.
Overall probably the best e-reader out, unless you need the constant 3G connectivity of the Kindle. It can be modded to run the Amazn Kindle app for Android.
