Starting November 8, customers may now avail themselves of the new Sony Reader Daily Edition. This latest monochrome digital reader from Sony now features Wi-Fi wireless connectivity in addition to its 3G option. It is an improved version of the PRS-900 Daily Edition.
Furthermore, just like the new Sony Reader Pocket Edition and Touch Edition, the Reader Daily Edition (PRS950) now also provides a touch panel control. Sony is proud to say it’s the first digital reader that uses optical touch screen technology which greatly improves ease of use on the full-touch screen display.
The 7-inch is also large enough for basic web browsing through Wi-Fi signal. It won’t be a full internet experience because the Sony Reader Daily Edition will only read pre-loaded reading-based URL addresses such as Google.com, Wikipedia.org, Twitter.com, CNET.com and Facebook.com.
Nevertheless, Sony says there is no monthly charge for using the Sony Reader Daily Edition PRS-950 on the web when using Wi-Fi signal. Another notable improvement on this Sony eReader is the addition of a USB 2.0 port which makes it easy to load up reading materials from other devices.
The default 2GB storage is also easily expandable to 32GB via the expansion slot. Other new features coming with the Sony Reader Daily Edition PRS-950 includes easy content zoom, adjustable contrast and brightness control, automatic multiple page creation and personalized standby screen. Users are now allowed to download and use their favorite pictures as a screen saver.
Sony Reader Daily Edition PRS-950 also has a new built-in Oxford American Dictionary and 10 translation dictionaries to foreign languages like German, Italian, French and Dutch. You can just double tap any word or phrase on this reader and you get instant translation!
The Sony Reader Daily Edition PRS-950 with Wi-Fi is selling for $299.00.
