Prs 350 qns

I sold my prs 300 for a decent price last week and decided to treat myself to one of the new readers, i flirted with the idea of a kindle, but for me it was just too big as i do a lot of my reading commuting to work and i wanted something pocketable.

In ireland the rrp of the 350 is 199.99 euro and the 650 is 249.99, for the sake of an extra 50 i had pretty much decided to go with the larger screen despite that fact i had been happy with the 300. however when i got to the store the 350 was on special at 159.99 so that mate my mind up for me!

im now the proud owner of a 350, im waiting on the official leather case to come into stock, for now im using the official sleeve from the 300.

anyway i just have a few questions, is it possible to get the reader to show the time while reading a book?

also, how do you select a work for look up in the dictionary? can it be done without the stylus?

i have very good vision so im using the reader with the xs small font size and i have to say i dont regret getting the 350 over the 650, i believe the xs is smaller than the s on the 300 so i have plenty of text per page.

anyone torn between the 2, if you can read at xs or s, go with the 350

Oho, I love the 350 and don't regret getting it.

1) You can press the Options button and the time will show up in the status bar at the bottom. There's no way to have the time permanently displayed in the status whilst reading a book though.

2) Use the stylus or your finger to double-tap a word while reading. That's all.

Yes, but only for a few seconds! After that the page number will be shown.

(At least at mine)
