|Bottom line|| |
While the PRS-505 Reader Digital Book is not without flaws, Sony's improvements make this model easier to recommend.
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.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
While the "all-new" Paperwhite may seem like an unspectacular upgrade on the surface, it's a clear improvement over the original Paperwhite and arguably the best e-reader currently available.
