Did you hear the news? The Sony Reader Touch Edition (the PRS 600) was voted the #1 ebook reader by PC World a few days ago.
It beat out the Kindle and other e-readers as the topic pick. Why? Read on.
The Sony Digital Reader Touch Edition (PRS600BC) got high marks because as PC World see’s it, you (the buyer) are not tied into buying books from only one source. (i.e. Sony) And also because it supports ePub, a widely used ebook format which even libraries use. Not too mention Sony Reader owners have access to over a million free (public domain) ebooks available to choose from on Google.
As for comparisons to the Kindle 2? The screen size and quality are the same as the Kindle 2, but with the addition of the two qualities mentioned above, PC World picks the Sony Reader Touch Edition (Sony PRS 600) as the number one ebook reader currently on the market. See our eReader Comparison Table table for further details.
I don’t necessarily agree with PC World on this one, but I would definitely say that the (Sony PRS 600) is definitely in the top three of all digital e-readers.
Sony Reader Touch Edition, Price: $289.
