Sony Reader PRS-T2 Review.. serious contender?

Sony Reader PRS-T2 Review.. serious contender? | Litteris | Scoop.it

"The Sony Reader PRS-T2 sports a 6-inch pearl E Ink touchscreen, and like nearly every other eReader out there, one of the big draws of the screen is that you can read it in direct sunlight. The screen actually looks great when it’s in direct sunlight, and it looks just as good when you take it indoors. The goal behind E Ink displays is to make it feel like you’re reading the page of an actual book, and the Reader PRS-T2 definitely succeeds in that respect."

Interactive Flipbooks: A Quirky Way to Read

Let's face it. The majority of our students don't like reading. Not at all. Even with all the cool gadgets available, which allows to keep thousands of novels in one place, students are just not interested it seems, but I empathize with them. I also wasn't into reading in high school. With playing sports, doing homework, watching my favorite television shows, and keeping up with friends, sitting down and reading for pleasure just never came to mind. It wasn't until college that I discovered reading can be fun and interesting.

"...A Amazon, responsável pelo Kindle, também deixa claro: a compra de um e-book é associada à conta do usuário e o conteúdo do Kindle não pode ser compartilhado como os livros físicos. “O conteúdo digital é licenciado e não vendido”, diz a Amazon. Com essas restrições, herdar a biblioteca da família seria impossível..."

Lançamento de um novo leitor de livros eletrônicos - Amazon Kindle Paperwhite,

Lançamento de um novo leitor de livros eletrônicos - Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, | Litteris | Scoop.it

Kindle Paperwhite

 

O Kindle evoluiu para uma nova versão com um ecrã luminoso Paperwhite. Um ecrã que não "ofusca", tem maior resolução maior contraste, maior densidade, e tem autonomia para 8 semanas, com a iluminação sempre ligada. Pode apresentar tamanho de letra memor e tipos de letra mais trabalhadas.  Os preços são bem competitivos: o novo Kindle Paperwhite custa $119, com a versão Paperwhite 3G custa $179. Ambos ficam disponíveis a partir de 1 de Outubro.

 

 A Amazon mantém um Kindle com modelo mais acessível, económico (sem o ecrã iluminado), que tem contraste melhorado, novos tipos de letra e maior velocidade ao "virar as páginas"... e que fica disponível por apenas $69 dólares.

 

A Amazon possui mais de 180 mil livros exclusivos para o Kindle.
