Sony PRS-T1 Review

  • 4.5 / 5
    • The good:
      Touchscreen Interface, With Wi-Fi, Lightweight
    • The bad:
      No 3G, Glossy finished, Limited colors
    Sony would have you believe that its PRS T1 Reader is an instrument that brings back the glory of reading books. So how much of that promise is true? Marketing at the time of the release of the Sony Portable Reader System T1 Reader claimed it to be the lightest and most compact eReader at 5.9 ounces. the T1 is made of light plastic and has 6” display screen. It is touchscreen and with Wi-Fi. For readers, the device has twelve dictionaries and millions of book titles to choose from in the Sony Reader Store. It can store up to 1200 title on 2GB of internal memory expandable to 32GB (through the microSD slot). A 3.5 headphone jack facilitates the use of listening devices for audiobooks. The touchscreen of the Sony PRS-T1 Reader makes reading a lot easier. A tap can turn pages, while a tap and hold can access two dictionaries and ten foreign languages which is also very handy for travelers. A pinch on the touchscreen can make the font smaller or bigger; this works well with those who have eye problems. The Sony PRS-T1 Reader also reads PDF files, aside from the other popular electronic document formats. Imagine 1200 books at hand and much more if you upgrade the memory to the 32GB maximum. The Sony PRS-T1 Reader doesn’t come with a 3G option. However, the web browser is fast and can easily access email links, Facebook and news. Public libraries with internet access and hotspots can also be accessed for downloading free ebooks. The glossy plastic around the screen is smooth but poses distractive reflections. It is also vulnerable to scratches—although this made this ereader a lot lighter than others, so light, thin and narrow that it can be read using one hand. Stylus is available but there’s no way to attach this to this ereader.
