Why don't you just look at the website yourself? People here are happy to help, but there comes a point where it looks as if you're just getting other people to do the work for you!

Actually I believe all of this information is in our wiki as well.

I have a Nokia N800 Internet Tablet (206g) that I use for reading and recently was able to compare it side by side with a Sony 505. While they are significantly different in physical size, the Sony felt very easy to handle and not heavy at all. I have hand probs so I tend to pay more attention to these things. And I can say I would easily handle the Sony and w/o a doubt the Kindle also. Still I would like both devices to have an flip out easel style stand to allow use on a table or other reasonably flat surface.

But just thought I would pass along that I found the device very well balanced. A devices center of gravity and overall weight distribution can make a significantly heavier device feel lighter then one which is differently balanced yet of similar dimensions.

Most folks only have one model, so it's going to be tough to get an experience-based answer. Which leaves you with the actual weights ... which really ought to be the same for everyone.

I'm not so sure. I think that some people on this board are living on a different planet - where the weight would be different .

I find the Sony Reader and Amazon Kindle equally handy, w/ the Kindle possibly edging out the Sony 'cause of the more ergonomic shape and ``grippier'' materials (it's plastic and a soft rubber I believe). However, the Sony is slightly lighter and much smaller and fits in a (large) shirt pocket, so I find it meets my needs better.

I don't find either difficult to read w/, nor especially more tiring than its competition and arguably both are easier to handle than a physical book w/ a stiff spine where one has to struggle to hold it open (I don't break the spines on my paperbacks and often am queried whether or no I read them when they're viewed on the shelf).

Compared to the Cybook, the Sony is a hog. And the Kindle strikes me as an unwieldy elephant. I'm not saying the Cybook has the same feature set as the Kindle or Sony, but if you like light weight and ease of use, the Cybook rocks!
