We first heard word of the Sony Reader back in January when it made its triumphant debut at CES 2006. Patrick Norton at PC Mag recently gave the Sony Reader a nice little hands-on. Like most of the other pre-reviews we have seen, people are wowed by how nice the e-ink looks and how easy the text is to read. Picture display isn't the best quality, but why should it be? This is an e-book reader, not a picture viewer. Norton also says that the controls have a non-intuitive design that takes some getting used to, but all-in-all, the Sony Reader would be an excellent edition to any bookworm's collection. It will go for $300 to $400 and be available soon—hopefully. Hit the linkage for Norton's video review.
