Wall Street Journal compares Kindle to PRS700

http://online.wsj.com/video/andy-jor...A9895878F.html

Hopefully you can all get to the video. It's not a very good review unfortunately.

First, it calls the PRS700 "the Sony Reader", ignoring the fact that it's only one of two models sold by Sony.

Secondly, she does a drop test, but only drops one device, the Sony.

She doesn't explain anything about the formats, DRM, etc. She doesn't tell you that you can buy contemporary titles from all sorts of places besides the Sony store. Essentially, she says the Sony product is a good one in a world without the Kindle. She trumps the wireless feature as the single most important feature for a consumer.

Glad eBooks are getting the exposure, but disappointed in the lackluster review from a woman who already has a bias.
