Sony Reader Daily Edition e-reader
Sony Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC (silver)
Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5
The good: Responsive touch-screen interface with no glare or contrast issues; high-contrast 7-inch E-Ink Pearl display; both Wi-Fi and 3G wireless connectivity; zippier performance than its predecessor; integration with Sony e-book store; good battery life (up to 22 days); supports EPUB e-book standard, which enables e-book downloads from libraries and other third parties; audio capabilities; SD and Memory Stick Duo memory expansion slots; charges via Micro-USB port.
The bad: Expensive compared with the competition; Sony online store isn't as robust as Amazon's; Sony Reader app not available on many other platforms; no protective cover included.
The 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.
