which readers have the case made of aluminium?
One of the criteria for choosing an e-reader for me it to have the case made of aluminum. So what readers are made of aluminum?
Does Kindle Touch have the case made of aluminum?

I don't think any current models do. The Sony 505, 650, & 950 do/did. No Kindle model has ever had an aluminum casing.

I concur - AFAIK, the Sony 650 was the last one to do so. I presume Sony ceased using aluminium to get the price point down to where it could compete with Kindle.

Given that pretty much all current readers support WiFi, metal cases wouldn't work too well; it would block the signal.
