Sony, $179


The Sony Reader is smaller and lighter than the Kin­dle, with a 6-inch screen but a 168g weight. It also has a smaller stor­age ca­pac­ity at 1200 books, though you can add a 32GB

mem­ory card. The Reader has a touch-sen­si­tive screen and comes

with a sty­lus, mak­ing its menus in­tu­itive. Bat­tery life is a month or more, de­pend­ing on how you use the de­vice, and it of­fers au­dio play­back so you can lis­ten to mu­sic while you

read. The Reader uses E Ink tech­nol­ogy so books can be read in the light. Sony has yet to open its Aus­tralian e-book store, but you can down­load books from Dymocks or

other stores.
