Chart - all Kindles, Nooks, Sony, Kobo

I can't swear that the Sony and Kobo are up to date. I thought the Sony T was 149.
Also I wish the Ipad had been included just for comparison.

I know you know this but just in case, you will have to hit your enlarge buttons on your browser to see the details.

For Firefox to make larger, hit at the same time the two buttons:
(ctrl) (+) --- don't hit the parenthesis please

to make smaller use
(ctrl) (-)

to reset for normal size
(ctrl) (0)

Do it several times until you can see the chart.

That's a rather cool comparison chart. Good find.

Nice. Shame the pictures arn't to scale though (Amazon Fire looks huge compared to Nook Color), and the Kobo Touch being on an angle.

Hmmm, nice chart. Thinking after seeing that I should reconsider the Kobo instead of a Kindle.

Thanks. I thought it was wrong, but I only knew the price to correlate.

I thought it 'was' the old PRS-650. Isn't the price wrong if it is ment to be the PRS-T1. Scrolling down it did say Android so is a I guess it is meant to be the T1.

I have one (as does wife) and we much like. The book selection does appear a little better on Amazon for us residing in AU, though on the flipside there are more .epub stores you can hit up giving some choice - plus most the firmware bugs have been ironed out now. Anyway thumbs up from me. If I was purchasing today however I would give the SONY PRS-T1 a decent look too, it's listed as AU$179 with delivery direct from SONY for preorder (ship till 5th Oct) which isn't too bad (considering how we normally get hit with silly markups).

I took a look at the chart, and I think they are talking about PRS 650 not T1. They say that it doesn't have Wifi, and that it support lrf. Also, the price is wrong.

Yes, I noticed that it was a tad smaller (width=4.5 inch).
If memory serves me correctly, the Sony T1 was also narrower. About 4 1/3 inches maybe.

Yes, it's interesting that they had all the details about the just announced Kindles, but couldn't find the Sony PRS-T1 which was announced a couple of weeks ago... Bias, or just lazy?

The picture shows a PRS-600, it says it runs Android despite the PRS-T1 being the only android based Sony Reader, and the price is only accurate for the PRS-650.

basically, that chart is worthless until they fix their mistakes.

It's only worthless if you actually care about the Sony. I doubt most people do.

If they got things that badly off for one brand, how can it be trusted for others?
