External reviews of Sony PRS-T2
  • Sony Reader PRS-T2

    Plus

    • is a compact and lightweight touch-screen e-book reader with built-in Wi-Fi and fast page turns. It offers access to a large catalog of e-books, magazines, and newspapers via Sony's online store, plus online loaners from your local library. It also supports EPUB files, and is compatible with any e-book store that uses the Adobe DRM format. Its battery lasts for up to two months on a single charge with Wi-Fi off.

    Minus

    • At $129, the PRS-T2 costs $10 more than competing models that have an integrated light. The Sony bookstore isn't as extensive as Amazon's or B&N's, and the Sony Reader app isn't currently available on the iPhone and iPad.

    Conclusion
    The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.

  • Sony Reader PRS-T2

    Plus

    • Svelte design
    • Crisp font choices
    • Memory card slot
    • Stylus helps with note-taking and underlining

    Minus

    • Expensive compared with the competition
    • No backlight or edge lighting
    • Sony Reader Store still needs work
    • Nowhere to store stylus

    Conclusion
    The Sony Reader PRS-T2 is a nicely upgraded ebook reader that still costs too much for what you get. And without a backlight, it's virtually a non-starter.
