Sony Reader Electronic Book In Pictures
Posted on 8-Jan-2006 09:06 by M Freitas | Tags Filed under: Blog


The Sony Reader is going to be available in the USA soon and we bring some pictures taken during the 2006 International CES.

The devices ties together an electronic paper display with one-handed navigation and an interesting design. The Sony Reader is incredibly light, and it has a crisp black and white display.

That's right folks: this is not a colour device, and there is no backlight either. It is a book, an electronic one sure, but like any other paper book we will need some light to read it. Because of this, according to Sony, readers will not experience the fatigue associated with long term reading on an LCD

The Sony Reader is about .5 inches thin and can read Memory Stick and Secure Digital (SD) flash memory card (yes!).

The Reader can also store and display personal documents in Adobe PDF format, web content, and JPEG photos. The official press release says its battery life is equivalent to 7,500 page turns.

The high-resolution electronic paper display technology delivers a realistic print look. The result is readable text and graphics from a variety of viewing angles.
