In depth technical specs

Talking about the technical aspects of the sony ebook reader you'll probably note that it has a very essential design.

Both the model are touch screen that's why they come with a little touch pen inside of the box.

On of the thing that can possibly be annoying is the position of the arrow keys. You'll find them on the bottom of the screen.

That isn't a huge issue but sometimes can be really frustrating.

Are you wondering about battery life? Well do not be afraid because you'll have 100 hours of battery life!

You'll be able to take notes while reading and to check vocabularies for particular words. One thing that is to notice is the low initial memory that is only 1.3GB that is about 1200 books. I think it's enough for an average reader but you won't be able to store your personal library on your device though.

If you want to keep more ebooks in your device you can buy a MicroSD card up to 32gb.

The two devices are able to connect via Wi-fi.


The two models has a 6" E-Ink pearl display with a resolution of 800x600 so that you can read in every circumstance, even under direct sunlight and it won't reflect anything.
