Another Sony Reader Review
This time from engadget. In the book, I suggest that the definitive ebook device is on its way; despite the fact that it’s lagging behind the development of things like digital cameras and mp3 players. It may be taking a while, but the ebook is following a similar development trajectory. I haven’t played with a Sony Reader yet, but I don’t think it’s *the one*. (But if anyone out there has one – even an old one – I’d love to play with it) But as Engadget suggests, those of us who remember the Diamond Rio can see the pattern…
it really does remind us of the early MP3 players back in the late 90s: maybe the content isn’t as readily accessible as we might like, but the hardware is starting to come into its own (we have a feeling 3rd generation will be prime time), and damned if we don’t want to start using this thing for all our bookwormish purposes post-haste.
And yes, the iphone as ebook reader review *is* coming; I’ve just finished reading one novel on it, and started another. About enough screen time to pass judgement, methinks. Watch this space 😉
