|Bottom line|| |
Sony's flagship e-reader, the Daily Edition PRS-950, is a capable, well-designed e-reader that offers both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity--but at $300, it's too expensive.
The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.
Though there's a lot to like about the Daily Edition, the dazzle of Sony's first e-reader to integrate cellular wireless connectivity is diminished by its lackluster screen and high price tag.
With an excellent built-in light and Amazon's best-in-class e-book selection, the Kindle Paperwhite rises to the top of the e-reader pack.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
