Sony PRS-T2 Review
Sony PRS-T2 is one of the up and coming innovations which feature the very simple yet elegant design of a portable reader. They say that if the Amazon Kindle or Kindle Paperwhite is not around, then the Sony PRS-T2 should have been the yardstick for these kinds of readers. This e-book reader may not be as advanced as the others, it still is a way of keeping everything simplistic and yet alluring on its own right.
Technically, the Sony PRS-T2 has the common features such as a month of battery life, the 6-inch E Ink screen, and the variety of downloadable e-books you can get through it. It is made to be particularly light and looks so remarkably thin. What makes it slightly edgier than the ones from Kindle is that this one already has the touchscreen feature.
The difference that the Sony PRS-T2 has from the Amazon Kindle is the mere fact that this one has a very modern approach which is actually fairly greater than the latter’s. Although it still has restrained some of the more advanced features in order to keep everything on the level of what a real e-book reader is all about. Of course you should not expect it to be as grandeur as an Apple iPad or a Samsung Galaxy Tab.
It has the sophisticatedly stylish yet very down to earth design which anybody can enjoy and will definitely not make them feel as if they are inferior to it. Because the truth of the matter is there are a lot of devices which makes you feel as if you don’t deserve to use it in one way or another. The Sony PRS-T2 is pretty intuitive most especially with its ergonomic way of dealing with things. One feature you will love about it is the fact that you can just tap it and not swipe it anymore when you want to change the page and things like that.
Price wise, the Sony PRS-T2 has a hint or a niche rather when it comes to being really affordable. However, if you try to base the price to the quality of the brand then maybe the Sony PRS-T2 has a weaker set in comparison to the others. Typing on the screen is pretty awesome as it has been made to be quick and free of hassles.
What’s kind of confusing about the Sony PRS-T2 is that it has a lot of face buttons. It’s as if the Amazon Kindle got the one up here as it has no present buttons for navigation at all. It’s just you and the touchscreen, as simple as that. One other drawback of the Sony PRS-T2 is the fact that it does not have the lighted up screen which kind of makes it utterly difficult to use in dark areas and even when the lights are already out at night. Some of the other features which can do some improvisations are how the buttons are not as precise or straightforward. Like for example, if you want to go to a certain location, all you get is the about page of the e-book.
All in all, the Sony PRS-T2 is a decent device. It has got a lot of work to do up on its sleeves. But for what it is right now, it is quite marvelous in its own right.
