New Sony Reader, the PRS-T2, builds on over five years of development efforts by the manufacturer that refined E-Ink Pearl technology for more comfortable and flicker-free reading.
It providers the reader with up to two months use (with Wi-Fi off) from a single battery charge – double the battery life of the previous Reader model. Reader’s enhanced contextual menu makes it quick and simple to look up highlighted words and passages on Wikipedia or Google wherever a Wi-Fi connection is available.
The new Reader PRS-T2 integrates the cloud-based aggregation service Evernote. The users can mark quotes and passages from their current read and upload them to the cloud. They can also download saved content from Evernote to the Reader. Using Evernote Clearly, uploaded articles and web clips from the user’s PC, tablet or smartphone can be read later on the Reader.
The users of the Reader can choose from a large selection of books in a range of open digital formats, including the popular EPUB standard. They can buy titles directly with one-touch access to the Reader Store wherever there’s a wireless connection available, from only 20p.
As part of Sony’s collaboration with Pottermore and the Pottermore Shop (the exclusive home of the Harry Potter eBooks), the new Reader comes with a voucher to redeem against the first eBook in the Harry Potter series free of charge – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
