Sony Reader Pocket and Reader Touch: E-book readers at a bargain


Sony PRS-300 and PRS-600

Last week we covered the imminent release of the Samsung SNE-50K e-book reader, so it seems reasonable for us to give as much information as we can about Sony’s two new e-readers: the PRS-300 and PRS-600, or as they are known to the masses, the Pocket and Touch editions. We’ve got full specs on each for you after the jump, but in a nutshell, both sport USB 2.0 connectivity, 512MB internal memory, Mac compatibility, and a lack of Wi-Fi. Remember, these are budget readers, but Sony says a Wi-Fi model is on the way soon. Both the Reader Pocket and PRS-600 will be available at the end of the month.

Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
Many thanks, I appreciate it!
