Sony's latest eBook reader weighs only 163g, and its slim, plastic case is a far cry from the original Sony Reader PRS-505 with its metal trimmings and leather case. Although it doesn't feel as sturdy, it's a far more advanced device, with a touchscree...

It took me a week to discover that I could turn pages in the Sony PRS-T1 eBook reader by swiping my finger right to move a page forward, or left to move a page back. My natural instinct was just to press the side of the page, as you can on an iPad, to...
Sony's latest claims to be the world's lightest e-book reader, and at just 168g it's very hard to beat -- even The Simpsons' Mr Burns could get through War and Peace without wearing himself out. At £130 it's a fair few quid more expensive than Amazon's...

Amazon's Kindle has become synonymous with ereaders in a manner reminiscent of iPod domination of MP3 player land. But there are others out there, with much to give. There's Kobo, there's iRiver - but the best of the rest is Sony. Its latest Reader PRS-T1...

Bottom line The Sony Reader PRS-T1 marks a slight change of direction for Sony's ereader range. Metal construction is out, replaced by a much lighter and slightly more affordable model that's roughly as thin and weighty as a Kindle, while packing better connectivity...
The Reader can handle most e-book formats, including the most common, ePub, both with and without DRM, as well as TXT and PDF files, but not Mobipocket. The web browser means you can download books from any content provided. The Reader's real weakness...

Bottom line The Sony Reader PRS-T1 is a great e-book reader whose touchscreen display boasts great contrast ratios. It's hardly a revolution for the Reader range, but it does finally add WiFi, and support for the ePub format is a definite bonus. It will be even be...
When reading, the default settings of the Sony Reader Wi-Fi Touch’s text is smaller than the Kindle’s but equally readable. We did find that the default text size had to be bumped up in one of the books we looked through ( by Jessica Rudd) where it wa...

Bottom line Sony's touch-sensitive, Wi-Fi enabled eBook reader is a solid product, although you'll need to want the extra features afforded by the touchscreen for it to be worth buying over the cheaper and more intuitive Amazon Kindle...
The Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1's core specs are on a par with those of the other big eReaders, too. In spite of this model's handy buttons, however, it stumbles in overall usability and navigation. The Reader Wi-Fi carries a competitive price of £130. On...
Bottom line The Sony Reader Wi-Fi lacks the menu finesse and social media hooks that Barnes & Noble's Nook Simple Touch boasts. But its new pricing puts it right in line with its e-reader competition, and as a result it's an attractive choice, especially for peopl...
The Sony Reader PRS-T1 Wi-Fi is a light and thin ebook reader that doesn't quite measure up to the competition. If the only two specifications you care about are the weight (167 grams) or the thickness (9.5mm) then this might be your best option. Howev...
