PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "You can tell that the new PRS-505 is from Sony because 1) it's a gorgeous piece of kit in a tiny package, 2) it has a Memory Stick Pro Duo expansion slot, and 3) it uses proprietary DRM. But the last two points, so unfortunately characteristic of Sony in the last decade, suggest that the company is changing-slowly. Not only does the new Reader sport an SD card slot alongside the Pro Duo slot, but it plays AAC and MP3 files; ATRAC doesn't even make an appearance on the spec sheet. Oh, and did I mention that the Reader is Penguin-powered?"

Still waiting...

I want color. even just 256 colors would be great, so that you could actually look at illustrations in books, or even comics if that's your thing.

I'm not sure Sony should have waited a bit longer until they could put out a product that was a LOT better than their last e-reader. There still just aren't enough features for me to sink the cash to buy one of these.
