  • Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1

    Plus

    • is a compact and lightweight touch-screen e-book reader. It offers access to large catalog of e-books, magazines, and newspapers via Sony's online store, plus online loaners from your local library, has support for EPUB files, and is compatible with any e-book store that uses the Adobe DRM format. This Reader also offers audio capabilities and has a microSD card expansion slot, and its battery lasts for up to five weeks on a single charge with Wi-Fi off.

    Minus

    • At $149, the PRS-T1 costs $50 more than the $99 Kindle Touch and it doesn't offer some of the little extras, like 3G wireless, e-book lending, and social-media integration, that competing e-readers offer. The Sony bookstore isn't as extensive as Amazon.com's, and the Sony Reader app isn't currently available on the iPhone and iPad.

    Conclusion
    While there's no compelling reason to buy it over the Kindle Touch, the Sony Reader Wi-Fi is a very solid e-reader.
