The Sony PRS-505 Reader Digital Book couples an innovative electronic paper display with simple on-screen controls and stylish design. Travelers can carry as much as they want to read whether they are traveling across the globe or just around the corner. With battery life equivalent to roughly 7,500 continuous page turns, readers can potentially devour multiple bestsellers without having to recharge.
The Reader’s high-resolution electronic paper display delivers a realistic print look that rivals traditional paper and results in crisp text and graphics that are easy on the eyes and readable even in bright sunlight. In addition to electronic books the Reader can also store and display personal documents in Adobe PDF format, RTF, text and JPEG photos. You can also download via your PC, selected RSS feeds from blogs and news sites, free-of-charge. Some of the popular sites are Salon, Slate, Huffington Post, engadget and Gizmodo among others that are also available.
