Sony Readers Reviewed
Posted September 14, 2009on:
My old buddy Wilson Rothman at Gizmodo spent some time with Sony’s latest e-readers and found them underwhelming. Rothman says the $300 “Touch” suffers from a terrible glare problem, making it hard to read; the $200 “Pocket,” which isn’t touch based, is so stripped down it doesn’t offer Search.
Sony is trying hard to be a contender in this market, but has yet to produce anything innovative, much less up to date. Its upcoming wireless model, the “Daily,” is supposed to be here in time for the holidays, which, I guess, makes it somewhat competitive with the the very first Kindle, launched well over a year ago. Perhaps now that the Reader division is under Sony’s Vaio division, it’ll pick up the pace. Color by 2011?
