Not the news I was hoping for, unless it moves the 505 price downwards.

Too much to hope for a PRS-500 to PRS-700 trade-in like they're doing for the PRS-505? Been holding out until today for this announcement... now it looks like I want to finally upgrade my PRS-500

Oddly enough, I actually asked that question.

The answer was to the effect that they didn't have anything like that planned at the moment.

What YouTube demo? Sony? Or PlasticLogic? Can't find a Sony PRS-700 eBook Demo on YouTube, I'm afraid.

That's a bit of a bummer. But still, the availability of the touch screen does leave that a possibility in the future.

If not officially, perhaps unofficially

Or would it be too difficult? I know that you're not going to get Wacom levels of accuracy and writing quality on a passive touch screen, but PDA's and other devices have been able to offer a reasonable experience on such screens.

We think it's a capacitive touch screen, they don't do so good on digink, apparently.

Did anyone notice this snippet from the press release (emphasis mine):

Quote:
With the included eBook Library 2.5 PC software, you can easily transfer Adobe PDF documents with reflow capability, Microsoft Word documents, BBeB files and other text file formats to the Reader.
My installed version of eBook Library says V2.2.00.18100, and when I click on check for updates, it says I am using the latest.
