Benefits of the Sony Ebook Reader
Whether you’re interested in reading ebooks or writing ebooks and selling them, the Sony ebook reader was one of the first brands on the market to make an impression with users. Some of the benefits include:
- Supports Adobe® PDFs, plus TXT, RTF, BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG and Microsoft® Word files
- Plays MP3 and AAC files
- 192MB memory
- Memory slot holds an SD Memory Card (up to 2GB) and Memory Stick Duo media (up to 8GB)
Some models are currently not for sale anymore, but the typical range of prices is between $200 and $400 through retailers.
Downsides of the Sony Ebook Reader
You have to get your ebooks though the CONNECT ebook online store, which might be limited for some people, unlike other ebook readers like the Kindle or the iPad ebook reader. The Sony ebook reader is also a little darker than some people like for their reading and the memory storage isn’t as high as some might like, though you can always buy more memory.
