Sony’s new eReaders – the Touch and the Pocket

Sony’s new eReaders – the Touch and the Pocket

With officially introducing two new eReaders, Sony has invigorated the stagnated eReader industry and opened new competition. Fortunately, the end-user can now choice of two more alternatives namely the the PRS-300, called the Pocket, and the PRS-600, aptly named the Touch. As the names imply, the Touch is equipped with a resistive 6-inch touchscreen that handles fingerprints and smudges without affecting the readability, and further comes with a stylus that’s designed to comfortably use a virtual keyboard for quick notes and anchors for a later revisit with just a move. The Pocket comes with a smaller 5-inch screen, but likewise a way slender bezel for the maximal mobility. The storage capacity of 512MB is for both eReaders extensible via Memory Stick or SD cards, albeit the built-in storage suffices for approximated 350 eBooks. Besides, both devices share an 8-levels gray scale screen with a 800 x 600 pixel resolution readjusted for better readability, USB 2.0 connectivity, able to serve up to two weeks on one single charge, and can handle almost any format including BBeB, ePub, PDF and Word files.
