Sony Reader Daily Edition review

 

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.

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...

Review: Sony Reader Daily Edition

Sony Reader Daily Edition

 

This pricey but touch-friendly eReader delivers a large screen, 3G connectivity, and an easy-to-use interface.

Sony clearly hopes that 3G connectivity and a large touchscreen will make the t want to be locked into one eBook store as they would with the Kindle. But for pure ergonomic comfort, the Kindle 2 offers the best design, plus a large selection of daily...

Sony Reader Daily Edition

 

Sony's high-end eReader, with lots of bells and whistles

An eInk screen makes for low eyestrain; Decent battery life; Simple yet competent audio playback

Pricey in comparison to other eReaders

Sony Reader Daily Edition

 

The Sony Reader Daily Edition is a solid E-Ink reader. And if wireless and 3G capabilities are a must for you, it’s a great investment. Like the other Sony devices, by supporting both industry standard formats, ePub and PDF, you can access...
