The new Reader Wi-Fi from Sony allows users to buy, borrow or get eBooks for free wherever there’s a wireless connection available. It is the first eReader that gives users access to e-collections of public libraries thanks to simple access on the device. Weighing just 168g, it features the advanced Dual Touch screen. E Ink Pearl electronic paper displays a clear, glare-free, high contrast image even in direct sunlight.
It features two built-in English language dictionaries and ten translation dictionaries. It also offers access to Google and Wikipedia browsers.
Reader Wi-Fi handles a wide range of digital formats, including the EPUB eBook standard, plus PDF and TXT documents. It could be used for viewing digital photos on screen and for listening to music while reading. Its battery life lasts for over one month (3 weeks with wireless on) and its 2GB capacity is enough to hold around 1,200 eBooks.
