Shiny Video: Quick look at the Sony Reader


I managed to have a little play with the Sony Reader the other day and I must say I was pretty impressed, bearing in mind it was a piece of kit in which I’d I really had no previous interest. The £200 price tag is still a little off-putting when you think of all those second hand bookshops but the real acid test for me is how it will stand up to on the beach after being dropped in the sand or at the bottom of a backpack after three months of travel.

Looking forward to a more in-depth look and bit of casual abuse – for the Reader that is, not me. Well, not that I’m going to tell you about anyway.
