Sleek, easy to navigate, touch screen Sony eReader
The Sony PRS-600 Reader Touch Edition provides users with a different approach to eReaders than its predecessors or its rival, the Amazon Kindle. The eReader supports various formats including text, Microsoft Word and Adobe PDFs, and features an overhauled desktop software. The included application connects to the Sony eBook store with reduced priced eBooks, such as New York Times bestsellers for $10. The app synchronizes with the eReader, transferring eBooks, RSS feeds and "Collections" which are similar to iTunes playlists, but for books. Our latest review exposes the pros and cons of the new device.
