Sony Portable Reader System PRS-500: I Want One of These eBooks
I just put my name on Sony's mailing list to be alerted when the first Sony Portable Reader System PRS-500 eBooks are available. I want one. These eBooks, which are going to retail for around $350, look like they'll really work. They have an e.ink technology, which doesn't flicker - it basically is on or off and has the resolution of newsprint (around 170 dpi). The device weighs about half a pound and is 7" x 5" x 0.5" thick. It's a super-thin paperback. And about the same weight. I'm going to get one. I'll let you know when it's in my hands.
