I find that the time display in PRS+ is so unobtrusive, it takes a deliberate effort to look at it. It took me a while to even notice it was there, but I think I'd now miss it if I bought a T1.

Am inclined to wait until PRS+ is available, and to wait in hope of price reductions as availability and competition improves. in the UK , it seems that only Sony store has stock & they don't have silver.

the x50 range has now vanished from UK stores, at least that what google shopping thinks. waterstones had some at £159 but no longer. Could be that Waterstones have quit selling reader hardware completely.

Time display at all times is important to me also, because I read a lot at night and need to keep checks on myself so I don't read too late. I don't wear a watch, my iPhone is my "clock" but I'd prefer, when reading, to just glance in a corner once in a while rather than go through a bunch of menu options every time I want to see the time. hopefully PRS+ or something will step in and give users options.

I loved having the clock on my 505, but I also love the fact that the T1 devotes almost its entire screen to *reading*.

A clock and a battery icon on the bottom of the screen would be nice, though.

The quickest way I've found to check the time during reading is to press the HOME and then MENU buttons. A Clock then appears at the top left.
Then you can select your book again to resume reading.
I guess that's pretty quick.

I would like to see the time and battery displayed at the bottom of the screen next to the page numbers, but I suspect it would require page refreshes (flashing page) every minute so they didn't add this.

--By the way, if you haven't discovered it already, when you're on your home page, you can press the top right corner of the screen to quickly turn off/on wifi only when you need it, to save battery power.--

PRS+ added a clock to all of the previous models and the clock updated only when you changed the page, it worked great.

I never really tought about that option to have the time always visible to check it. I am so used to my Jaeger-Lecoultre wrist watch. I use it for all my life. So I guess I am kind of old fashion at this

It is very confounding to me that they didn't just display it .... every other reading software/device I use displays the current time... even my old windoze phone using mobi reader.. i really like the t1 but there are a few software design decisions that have me frankly bewildered.. not an unusual state for me I must admit lol one of my pet peeves is that silly last 3 books loaded display on the main screen... showing the last 3 books READ would have made much more sense

I don't need a clock on the reader, because I wear a watch, but what I WOULD like is to have the battery status visible while reading.
