Sony 950 vs Pocketbook 302 or any suggestion
I have been looking around for a ereader and at first I have decided to get the Sony 950 but I just found out about the pocketbook 302 and I might consider it. However, it is not as well reviewed so I don't have all the information I need to make a decision.
Here are my requirements:
2- touch screen but mat not glossy
3- borrowing to the public library
4- Multiple format for ebooks . Don't want to be tied to any specific format
5- Dictionary and translation dictionary (I really like the way you access the dictionaries with the sony 950)
6-pdf readability especially for scientific articles with landscape possibility
7- Wi-Fi could be nice but not essential
As I said the 950 pretty much has everything I need, except that I think the price is just prohibitive. So, does the pocketbook close to the sony? I would rather it had a bigger screen but I could deal with 6'.
Anybody who knows both devices please enlight me! Thanks!

Have you considered the Sony 650? Except for wi-fi and the screen size the 650 is basically identical to the 950--and it is quite a bit cheaper than the 950.
I'm very happy with my 650--my husband has one as well. He uses the translation dictionaries on his 650 extensively and is very impressed with them. He also uses his 650 to view technical PDFs and is satisfied with that for the most part--it does do landscape well, and has quite a few zoom options.
I don't know anything about the pocketbook, so I can't comment on that.
Good luck with your decision!
