Sony Reader PRS-350 Pocket Edition review

 

The brilliant screen and user interface make this an ideal product to carry everywhere, but the Kindle's cheaper and has a wider range of new books available for it.

Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350 review

 

Like its larger siblings in Sony's latest line of e-readers, the Sony Reader Pocket Edition employs Sony's unique optical technology to allow fingers to tap away.

For a small-screen e-reader, the new Sony Reader Pocket Edition is one of the best models you can buy - but you'll pay extra for Sony's unique touchscreen design.

Sony eBook Reader Pocket Edition : Sony PRS-350 E-Book Reader Pocket Edition

 

Unlike the earlier version of this – that I was ashamed to be seen with in public – I have been happy to be seen reading this in public. In case you are wondering why the first one needed to be used in private it was PINK.

There is a Quick Start Guide with the first eight pages in English and this should enable even a novice to get going. The only other item in the box is the 1.2metre micro USB to USB lead that provides battery charge and the ability to add books and...

Sony Reader PRS-350 review

 

Sony Reader PRS-350 review,Pocket-sized device has a compact and lightweight design, but lacks wireless connectivity, technology news from Dan Worth at v3.co.uk

Well designed; lightweight and compact chassis; easy to use; long battery life; good format support

No memory expansion options; no wireless or 3G connection; more expensive that Kindle 2 with Wi-Fi and 3G

The Sony Reader PRS-350 is a compact, stylish and well designed device. Combining a simple design with a small form factor means that those previously put off from buying an e-book reader may reconsider, especially frequent business travellers. The...
