Sony PRS-T1 specs!



I just stumbled across these specs on a Dutch website: http://t.co/b0yOiAO - 6" E-ink / 2GB / dual touch / WiFi / 168 g / plastic body / € 164.95

Here's the full text in case they take it down (it's in Dutch - sorry I can't be asked to translate the whole thing)

Beschrijving

De Sony PRS-T1 kijkt zijn looks af van mobiele broer, de Xperia, met zijn gebogen lijn en hoogwaardige chrome afwerking. Dun en licht, dus makkelijk mee te nemen. De Sony PRS-T1 weegt slechts 168 gram. Het scherm is van de hoogste kwaliteit en biedt optimale leescondities. En dat terwijl de batterij hier niet onder te lijden heeft. Met de Sony PRS-T1 lees je wel een maand op één oplaadbeurt. Moderne functies mag je van Sony wel verwachten en gelukkig stelt de Sony PRS-T1 daarin niet teleur: WiFi, microSD-ondersteuning, woordenboeken en een weergave van de cover van een boek in stanby-modus. Door zijn verbetering en opvallende stijlvolle uiterlijk is de Sony PRS-T1 wederom een benchmark van Sony waar de concurentie zich tegen mag meten.

Compacter, mooier…beter

De Sony PRS-T1 is op drie fronten een aanmerkelijke verbetering . Ten eerste het display. Het E Ink Pearl display leest net als echt papier, kent geen reflectie en heeft een hoog contrast. Met als gevolg een betere leeservaring. Daarnaast is het uiterlijk iets verbeterd, met een moderne uitstraling. Het aluminium is vervangen door plastic, waardoor de e-reader 168 gram weegt en ideaal in de hand ligt. De laatste grote verbetering is de toevoeging van een dual-touchscreenm in plaats van een normaal touchscreen. Hiermee kun je nu ook pinch-to-zoom uitoefenen en andere handelingen uitvoeren waarbij je twee vingers kan gebruiken.

Uithoudingsvermogen

Grootste voordeel van een e-reader is dat je een hele collectie boeken in een handzaam formaat mee kan nemen. Maar dan moet de batterij het wel lang genoeg uithouden om een deel van de collectie te kunnen lezen. Gelukkig ervaar je één maand leesplezier met de Sony PRS-T1. En met die collectie boeken zit het ook wel snor. Zo kun je ongeveer 1200 boeken kwijt op het interne geheugen van 2 GB. Of nog meer via microSD-kaarten. Heb je onderweg zin in een nieuw boek, dan log je via Wifi in op de e-book-winkel van Bol.com en haal je de beste boeken binnen.

Zoek het op

Met de Sony PRS-T1 heb je alle kennis bij de hand via Wikipedia en Google Search, dus zit je verlegen om een antwoord op een prangende vraag, dan biedt deze e-reader je een antwoord. In nabijheid van een Wifi-aansluiting, uiteraard. Ben je in het buitenland en wil je een woord vertalen, zoek dan de oplossing in één van de twaalf 12 geïntegreerde woordenboeken.

Maak je Sony PRS-T1 eigen

De Sony PRS-T1 is in vergelijking met de voorgaande edities nog meer aan te passen, zodat je jezelf kan uitdragen. Zo maak je de Sony PRS-T1 nog persoonlijker door de boekenomslag te laten tonen, terwijl de reader in standbye-modus staat. Ook kun je het lettertype en de -grootte aanpassen, zodat je zo de optimale leeservaring instelt, die het beste voor jou werkt. Maak notities bij de boeken met de meegeleverde stylus, zonder blijvend gekrabbel in de marge. Onderstreep, accentueer, voeg voetnoten toe. De tekst wordt van jou!

Kenmerken van de Sony PRS-T1:

6 inch E Ink display, dual-touch
Resolutie van 800 bij 600 pixels
16 grijstinten
Wifi
2 GB intern geheugen, uit te breiden via microSD-kaarten
Ondersteunde bestandsformaten: EPUB, PDF, mp3, AAC, JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP
12 woordenboeken
Wikipedia en Google-search

Description

The Sony PRS-T1 watching his brother looks on Mobile, the Xperia, with its curves and high quality chrome finish. Thin and light, so easy to take. The Sony PRS-T1 weighs only 168 grams. The screen is of the highest quality and provides optimal reading conditions. And while the battery will not suffer it. The Sony PRS-T1 read it one month at a charge. Modern functions you may well expect from Sony, and fortunately, the Sony PRS-T1 does not disappoint: WiFi, microSD support, dictionaries and a reproduction of the cover of a book in stanby mode. With its stylish looks and striking improvement is the Sony PRS-T1 Sony yet another benchmark that can measure themselves against the competition.

More compact, more beautiful ... more

The Sony PRS-T1 is a significant improvement on three fronts. First the display. The E Ink display Pearl reads like real paper, has no reflection and high contrast. Resulting in a better reading experience. In addition, the appearance improved slightly, with a modern look. The aluminum is replaced by plastic, so the e-reader 168 grams and is ideal to hold. The last major improvement is the addition of a dual-touchscreenm instead of a normal touch screen. This can now zoom pinch-to-carry and other operations where you can use two fingers.

Stamina

Greatest advantage of e-reader is that a whole collection of books in a handy format can take. But then the battery will last long enough to become part of the collection to read. Fortunately, you experience one month reading pleasure with the Sony PRS-T1. And with that collection of books is also the mustache. So you can lose some 1,200 books on the internal memory of 2 GB. Or more via microSD cards. Do you go forward to a new book, you can log in via WiFi on the e-book store Bol.com and gives you the best in books.

Look it up

The Sony PRS-T1 you have all the knowledge at hand, and Google Search on Wikipedia, so you're shy to answer a pressing question, then this e-reader you an answer. In the vicinity of a WiFi connection, of course. You are abroad and want to translate a word, find the solution in an integrated dictionary of December 12.

Create your own Sony PRS-T1

The Sony PRS-T1 is compared with the previous issues to adapt even more, so you yourself can convey. How to make the Sony PRS-T1 more personal the book cover to display, while the reader standbye mode. You can also change the font size and customize your reading experience as the optimum setting, that best works for you. Take notes on the book with a stylus, scribbling in the margins without lasting. Underline, highlight, add footnotes. The text is yours!

If this is for real, the only real changes seem to be the multi-touch screen and the addition of WiFi.

I like the way that "GIF" format has translated at "POISON" .

I wonder what they're going to be using the dual touch for. Expanding font size?

And general zooming in and out I'd imagine, yes. With the WiFi it may of course have a web browser.

True, and you may have a working shift key for annotations with the on-screen keyboard.

Lighter by using plastics, don't know if that will effect quality or not.

Current book cover shown in standby mode?

Price CA$235.00, although EU prices are usually higher than North American.

That Dutch price, if it's for real, will of course include VAT, which is 19% in the Netherlands.

No reason that plastic should affect quality. The Kindle's made of plastic, and there seem to be few if any complaints about its quality.

a quick conversion of the 165 euros price into english pounds and pence shows roughly £150 pounds which is a very attractive price. will be interesting to see the cost when its launched .

It's attractive compared to the £199 of the PRS-650, but it is competitive against the £111 of the WiFi Kindle?

Will there be a 7" model again? I'm not willing to pay $300 for it as previously priced, but would certainly consider if discounted around the Christmas shopping season. That's assuming the Kindle touch isn't offered in that size.

I'm going to move this thread to the "News" forum, because I think it's of general interest outside the Sony community.

For those who can't find the price on that Dutch site - it's not normally displayed, but if you view another product the PRS-T1 will appear at the bottom of the page in recently viewed products, priced at € 164.95 :-)
