At the bottom of the first page it says 10 foreign language dictionaries.

Tap and hold your finger on any word you don't recognize for instant access to two on-board English dictionaries, as well as 10 additional foreign language dictionaries. Use the note-taking feature to highlight important text or jot down notes with your finger or the included stylus.

Most cases should fit. One less gripe, right?

The pic for the white reader on the sony site makes the buttons look like rubber chiclet buttons rather than flush capacitance switches. No audio, six dictionaries, no mention of Facebook or Evernote. The homescreen is tweaked but still lists Recently Added and the last opened. Below are three icons for Bookshelves, store, and Applications.
Indeed. Looking at accessories it looks like official cases are same for t2, that's great. Wonder if applicable icon means you can install apps. If you look on one of the other pages you can just about see the Facebook app I think

You can see the Facebook and Evernote icons on the app screen picture.

But look! There's four books in the recently added space instead of three! That's progress

Same old 600 x 800 display. I expected more from Sony. Perhaps not 900 x 1200 but at least more than was already there.

There's a feature that could come in very handy, as so many authors like to to spice up their writing on occasion with non-English words and phrases.

So...

Only the Black version has a matte bezel...

Only the Black version comes with a Harry Potter 'voucher'.

I'm going to have to think long and hard about this.

That's really good news I'm not buying one but I'd hate for them to stop using them, some day I'll need a new reader and I need the space of a Micro SD

noticed that there is new version of reader software released today including uk.

http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/pro...er_PC_v2_07121

also it looks like sony is halfway though updating the website to t2 as pictures are of the t2

http://www.sony.co.uk/product/rd-rea...ook/tab/models

wonder if we are still going to be ripped off here in the uk price wise

My loved PRS-950 is dead!

I loved to use with PRS+ and the possibility to disabled the scan of the sd-card and to put ALL my books on the sd-card

Quote:
I do hope they will allow selection of books by file explorer like. Once you get over a 100 stored books, the collection principle becomes almost useless.
What can I do, to do this in the new reader too? Why Sony will not have a new 7 inch modell?

Here can you find the new user guide http://www.docs.sony.com/release/PRST2.pdf
