Above is our Sony PRS-505 Reader on a stack of traditional format paperback books. The Sony device is thin, sturdy, and very capable. Although Mac and Linux support is almost non-existent for the importing of DRM-encoded books, we’ve authorised the unit through a Windows Vista operating system and are able to purchase and download Reader eBooks from Waterstone’s without any issues now. Mac to Reader book transfers are just a drag-n-drop away. Bliss!
Neil will be road-testing the Sony Reader on our upcoming holiday. Usage at home has so far been a very good experience.
